Item #d90jul78

"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.


Item #d90jul79

"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.


Item #d90jul80

"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.


Item #d90jul81

"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 chemistry.


Item #d90jul82

"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.


Item #d90jul83

"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.
