BOOKS AND PROCEEDINGS...
EARTH SYSTEM SCIENCE
Productivity of the Ocean--Present and Past, Vol. 44, W.H.
Berger, V.S. Smetacek, G. Wefer, Eds., 470 pp., 1989, $146 (Wiley-Interscience).
Proceedings from a workshop (Berlin, FRG) held in April 1988 containing
articles by 43 experts. These report and debate the relationships between the
productivity of the modern ocean, the geochemical record preserved in marine
sediments, and the validity of possible climate signals. (Reviewed by P.G.
Brewer in Science, p. 865, Feb. 16, 1990.)

Ozone Measuring Instruments for the Stratosphere, W.B. Grant,
Ed., 438 pp., Dec. 1989, $77/$46 members (Optical Society of America).
Discusses the historical development, design, testing, calibration,
instrument complementarity and ozone intercomparisons for 33 ozone measuring
instruments. Includes 30 article reprints and extensive references for each
instrument covered. Shows the growing importance of simultaneous measurement of
many stratospheric trace species.
Aerosols and Climate, P.V. Hobbs, M.P. McCormick, Eds., 486 pp.,
1988, $73 (A. Deepak Publ.). Reviewed by C.F. Rogers in Bull. Amer. Meteor.
