Global Climate Change DigestArchives of the
Global Climate Change Digest

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



Item #d90apr45

Operational Ozone Monitoring with the Global Ozone Monitoring Radiometer (NOAA-TM-NESDIS-28), W.G. Planet, 33 pp., Aug. 1989. NTIS: PB90-114034/XAB; $13.95.

The Global Ozone Monitoring Radiometer (GOMR) for the next series of operational polar-orbiting meteorological satellites will be made up of two components: (1) a nadir sounder for determining total ozone amounts and (2) a limb sounder for determining vertical stratospheric distributions of temperature, ozone and other trace gases of importance to ozone photochemistry.

Item #d90apr46

Assessment of Global Coastal Hazards from Sea Level Rise, V. Gornitz (Oak Ridge Nat. Lab., Tenn.), P. Kanciruk, 15 pp., 1989. NTIS: DE89-014077/XAB; $13.95.

Describes development of a global coastal hazards data base. High risk areas have low coastal relief, an erodible substrate, past and present evidence of subsidence, extensive shoreline retreat, and high wave/tide energies. These include the central Gulf Coast, South Florida, the North Carolina Outer Banks, southern Delmarva peninsula, and the San Francisco Bay.

Item #d90apr47

Airborne Arctic Stratospheric Expedition Nimbus-7 TOMS Data Atlas 1989 (NASA-RP-1277), A.J. Krueger (NASA-Goddard, Greenbelt, Md.), L.M. Penn et al., 154 pp., July 1989. NTIS: N89-27302/3/XAB; $21.95.

Provides a complete set of TOMS ozone measurements, taken during a major aircraft campaign, over Europe and the North Atlantic from December 1988 through February 1989, as well as Northern Hemisphere TOMS ozone measurements for December 26, 1988, through March 20, 1989. Compares January and February 1989 mean ozone values to prior years.

Item #d90apr48

ECC (Electrochemical Concentration Cell) Ozonesonde Observations at South Pole Antarctica During 1988 (NOAA-DR-ERL-ARL-18), W.D. Komhyr (ARL, NOAA, Silver Spring, Md.), 284 pp., June 1989. NTIS: PB90-110172/XAB; $28.95. Presents atmospheric ozone vertical distributions, air temperatures, wind speed and wind direction data made by 67 balloon electrochemical concentration cell ozonesonde soundings.

Item #d90apr49

Climate Scenarios for the First UC/DOE (Univ. California/Dept. Energy) Workshop (UCID-21634), J.B. Knox (Lawrence Livermore Nat. Lab.), 38 pp., May 1989. NTIS: DE89-014302/XAB; $13.95.

Provides a detailed discussion of the workshop climate scenarios for the periods 2000-2010 and 2030-2070. Describes the climate scenarios used by the State of California "Study of Global Warming" and by Australia to assess the effects of global warming.

Item #d90apr50

Effects of Trace Gases on Global Atmospheric Chemical and Physical Processes (UCRL-53903), D.E. Kinnison (Lawrence Livermore Nat. Lab.), 272 pp., May 1989. NTIS: DE89-013887/XAB; $28.95. (Ph.D. thesis)

Uses one- and two-dimensional chemical-radiative-transport models of the troposphere and stratosphere to calculate the net effects of changes of NOx, Clx and HOx on ozone distribution and temperature structure. A sensitivity study examines a broad range in magnitude, altitude and latitude of assumed NOx emissions for various background Clx values.

Item #d90apr51

Greenhouse Gas Signal Detection Strategies (UCRL-21147), M.E. Schlesinger (Ocean Res. Consultants, La Jolla, Calif.), T.P. Barnett, 39 pp., Feb. 1989. NTIS: DE89-009908/XAB; $13.95.

Considers two key elements of an appropriate detection strategy: what variables should be monitored in a detection program, and the comparison of the equilibrium versus transient climate system response.

Item #d90apr52

The UCAR Climate System Modeling Initiative: Report of the First CSMI Workshop, 27 pp., Jan. 1989. Available (no charge) from Univ. Corp. Atmos. Res., POB 3000, Boulder CO 80307 (303-497-1652).

Explains the plan to accelerate progress toward reliable predictions of global and regional climate changes in the decades ahead, with particular attention to the effects of the increasing greenhouse gases. Focuses on process studies and component process modeling to be done within the university community, and the creation of a coordinating mechanism and central system modeling.

Item #d90apr53

The 1989 Airborne Arctic Stratospheric Expedition: Nimbus-7 TOMS Data Analysis (NASA 1227), 156 pp., 1989. Available from NASA/contractor channels or NTIS: $21.95. Provides data from a December 1988 through February 1989 instrumented aircraft flight.

Item #d90apr54

An Assessment Model for Atmospheric Composition (NASA CP-3023), 64 pp., 1988. Available from NASA or NTIS: $15.95. Presents results from a workshop at NASA-GISS held in January 1988. The prototype model predicts the atmospheric concentrations of chemically and radiatively active trace gases through the 21st century, based on an assumed scenario.
