Solar geoengineering has been proposed as a backup method to mitigate anthropogenic climate change. Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP) is one of the key component of the sixth phase of Coupled Model Inter-comparison Project (CMIP6). GeoMIP designed a set of idealized solar geoengineering schemes, including reduction of solar irradiance, injection of sulfate aerosols into the stratosphere, injection of sea slat aerosol into marine low cloud, and increase of ocean albedo. Analysis of GeoMIP results improves our understanding of the climate system response to different solar geoengineering approaches and the underlying mechanisms. More climate models from China are encouraged to participate GeoMIP to improve China’s influence on the research of geoengineering as well as international climate negotiation.
