"Global Climate Change," D.K. Hall, Sci. Teacher, 56(6),
66-70, Sep. 1989.
A NASA scientist reviews historical climate changes, suggesting that
conclusions about their causes must be drawn with care. Maintains that
monitoring sea ice, snow, glaciers and ice sheets is essential to be able to
predict man's impact on our future climate.
"The Greenhouse Effect Revisited," C. Bohren, Weatherwise,
42, 50-55, Feb. 1989. Includes experiments in atmospheric physics to
demonstrate the greenhouse effect.
"The Science of the Changing Atmosphere," C. Gietz, Environ.
Views, 8-11, Dec. 1988.
Provides a question-answer and definition format to explain the greenhouse
effect, ozone depletion and acid rain.
"The Significance of Rising Sea Levels," G.J. Conway, Sci.
Teacher, 56(1), 63-65, Jan. 1989.
Suggests that graphing changes in tide and ocean levels over time, as well
as mapping variations in the continental shelves for various coastal cities,
would visibly demonstrate that sea level does change. This activity could
introduce a study of the greenhouse effect and its possible influence on sea
level, and a discussion of ways to reduce the warming trend.
