IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme. Established in 1991 under
the auspices of the International Energy Agency, operated by British Coal at the
Coal Research Establishment, and currently supported by six countries and the
Commission of the European Communities. The program provides information on many
topics related to greenhouse gases resulting from fossil fuel combustion:
emissions, atmospheric chemistry and climatic change, abatement and control of
greenhouse gases, and energy policy and economic models. It produces technical
evaluation reports on greenhouse gas recovery and disposal technologies,
pertinent economic evaluation reports, and proposals for research and
development on the control of greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels. A
newsletter available at no charge, Greenhouse Issues, deals with the
program and developments in various countries. For information contact A.R.
Jack, IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Prog., CRE, Stoke Orchard, Cheltenham, Glos, UK
(tel: 44-242-680753; fax: 44-242-680758).
The program also publishes Greenhouse Gases Bulletin, a bimonthly
current awareness journal. Full abstracts of publications of all types (journal
articles, reports, books and proceedings) are commingled without regard to type
under the broad program categories listed above (ozone depletion and effects of
climate change are generally not included). A calendar of meetings is included.
Annual subscriptions are Ј60 to IEA member countries, Ј180 to others;
free to organizations nominated by member country representatives. For

topic, this packet contains reprints of six recent articles of general interest,
Global Climate Change and Agriculture: A Summary (6 pp.); Chronology
of Global Climate Change (2 pp.); Directory of [U.S.] Organizations
(9 pp.); Global Climate Change Selected Annotated Bibliography
(6 pp. of 1989-1990 articles from journals likely to be found in medium-sized
public or college libraries); Guide to Information Sources (15 pp.
covering more scientific and technical reference sources--books, abstracts,
journals and selected articles); Global Warming and the Greenhouse
Effect--January 1979-February 1990 (338 citations from the AGRICOLA data
base, mostly technical).
Global Climate Change Information Programme. A project of the
Department of Environment and Geography Studies, Manchester Polytechnic, which
also has conducted the Acid Rain Information Programme since 1984. The program
disseminates information without advocacy to promote understanding of the issue.
Information sharing agreements are being established with a variety of national
and international organizations. Information packs are available on request, and
educational resources will be produced specifically for teachers and pupils.
