Several recent papers, discussed in the
following articles and listed in a special section of Professional
Publications in this Global Climate Change Digest issue--Apr. 1991,
argue against the likelihood of effectively reducing atmospheric CO2 levels by
fertilizing high-latitude areas of ocean with iron to stimulate the growth of
plankton. A similar view emerged from a February 1991 symposium held by the
American Society of Limnology and Oceanography in San Marcos, Calif.
