FROM VOLUME 5, NUMBER 12, DECEMBER 1992
EARTH SYSTEM SCIENCE
Two items from Earth, Nov. 1992.
"Earth Beat: Global Cooling," T. Waters, 16-18. Effects of the
dust cloud from Mt. Pinatubo have been simulated by global climate models,
providing a test of their ability to forecast climate change.
"20,000 Leagues under the Keys," D. Mallinson, 46-53. Scientists
are searching deep waters off the Florida coast for evidence of carbonate
deposition, to determine whether the Earth has built-in protection from the
"A Star in the Greenhouse: Can the Sun Dampen the Predicted Global
Warming?" R. Monastersky, Sci. News, 282-283, 285, Oct. 24, 1992.
(See Research News, this GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE DIGEST issue--Dec. 1992.)
"How Susan Solomon's Research Changed Our View of Earth," J.
Glantz, R&D Mag., 46-50, Sep. 1992. Profiles the career of the
magazine's Scientist of the Year, particularly her discovery of the link between
CFCs and the ozone hole.
"When Climate Twitches, Evolution Takes Great Leaps," R.A. Kerr,
Science, 1622-1624, Sep. 18, 1992. (See Research News, this GLOBAL
CLIMATE CHANGE DIGEST issue--Dec. 1992.)
"Cold Comfort," L. Oliwenstein, Discover, 18-22, Aug.
1992; "Icy Prospects for a Warmer World," G. Davidson, New
Scientist, 23-26, Aug. 8, 1992. Both articles discuss recent results from
several disciplines suggesting that global warming could encourage ice sheet
growth and sea level fall, rather than the opposite, which is the prevalent
Special Issue: Oceanus, 35(1), Spring 1992. (Woods
Hole Oceanog. Inst., 9 Maury Ln., Woods Hole MA 02543) Contains survey articles
