The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to geoengineering.
Geoengineering is the deliberate large-scale engineering and manipulation of the planetary environment to combat or counteract anthropogenic changes in atmospheric chemistry. This field is still in its theoretical stage, although first trials were already conducted (see Iron fertilization) or scheduled but delayed as a result of controversy surrounding the research (see SPICE Project).
Geoengineering can be described as all of the following:
Branches of geoengineering
Carbon dioxide removal
Solar radiation management
