Archives of the
Global Climate Change Digest
A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999
FROM VOLUME 3, NUMBER 7, JULY 1990
"The Fringe of the Ocean--Under Siege from Land," J. Cherfas,
Science, pp. 163-165, Apr. 13, 1990. An extensive discussion of the
recent Dahlem workshop on Ocean Margin Processes in Global Change
(Berlin, March 1990). See also "On the Edge of Disaster," S. Pain,
New Scientist, pp. 36-37, Apr. 28.
"Biomass Burning: Environment Hurt More Than Thought," B.
Hileman, Chem. Eng. News, pp. 4-5, Mar. 26, 1990. This conclusion
emerged from the first international conference on biomass burning
(Williamsburg, Virginia, March 1990), a largely human-controlled process that
releases several greenhouse gases. See also "Biomass Burning Ignites
Concern," R. Monastersky, Sci. News, pp. 196-197, Mar. 31.
"Ozone Hole's Hidden Chlorine Chemistry Explained," P. Zurer,
Chem. Eng. News, pp. 43-44, May 21, 1990. Discusses improved calibration
for measurement of chlorine monoxide carried out at Harvard University; this
explains initial unexpectedly low measurements of this key chlorine radical.
"Research Council Funds Seven-Year Program on Lab Simulation of
Atmospheric Chemistry," Intl. Environ. Rptr., p. 254, June 1990.
Included in the $7.5 million program, announced May 21 by the British Science
and Engineering Research Council, will be stratospheric ozone and greenhouse gas
"What's the Sound of One Ocean Warming?" A. Gibbons, Science,
pp. 33-34, Apr. 6, 1990. Next January, oceanographers will test the use of
acoustic tomography to measure average world ocean temperature. The technique,
which involves detection of carefully generated sound pulses at various
locations around the world, might provide accurate descriptions of temperature
trends associated with global warming.
"Many Hands Make Light Work of Climate Study," G.C. Anderson,
Science, p. 277, Mar. 22, 1990. Within the next ten years, "massively
parallel" computers may be able to run climate change models a thousand
times faster than current machines.
