A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999



Item #d89mar2

The national science academies of the United States and the Soviet Union agreed in December 1988 on a program of increased cooperation on global ecological problems such as greenhouse warming, global energy and biological cycles, and stratospheric ozone depletion. The two academies have been meeting regularly for over 30 years but, according to a spokesperson for the U.S. academy, this agreement reflects an increased willingness on the part of the Soviets to share data and cooperate in other ways. Under the objectives defined by terms of reference developed last fall (see REPORTS, this Global Climate Change Digest issue--Mar. 1989), the joint, senior-level Committee on Global Ecology will emphasize policy recommendations to the White House, the Kremlin and international bodies, although its charter also authorizes technical workshops and symposia. The committee will meet one to three times yearly; in March 1989, American members will narrow topics for discussion at the first full meeting in Moscow in June. One topic of interest is a comparative analysis of climate records.
