PROFESSIONAL PUBLICATIONS...
CLIMATE CHANGE IMPACTS: GENERAL AND MISCELLANEOUS


Item #d93mar80

"An Exploratory Model of the Impact of Rapid Climate Change on the World Food Situation," G.C. Daily (Dept. Biolog. Sci., Stanford Univ., Stanford CA 94305), P.R. Ehrlich, Simulation, 59(5), 348-352, Nov. 1992.

The model simulates the effect of stochastic perturbations in food production due to climate change on population size. Several hundreds of millions to a billion or so people could die of hunger in future decades. However, climate change contributes proportionally much less to food deficits when population growth outpaces agricultural production.


Item #d93mar81

"Global Climate Change," G.A.E. Gall (Dept. Animal Sci., Univ. California, Davis CA 95616), M. Kreith, M. Staton, Agric. Ecosys. & Environ., 42(1-2), 93-100, 1992.

Discusses the likely impacts on the goal of feeding an increasing population while preserving species diversity.


Item #d93mar82

"Origins of the Great Barrier Reef," P.J. Davies (Dept. Geol., Univ. Sydney, Sydney, NSW 2006, Australia), Search, 23(6), 193-196, July 1992.

Some consequences of possible rapid future climate change, as well as insights into better reef management, can be learned from examining the geological record.


Item #d93mar83

"Greenhouse Warming over the Indian Subcontinent," M. Lal (Ctr. Atmos. Sci., Indian Inst. Technol., New Delhi 110016, India), B. Bhaskaran, Proc. Indian Acad. Sci.--Earth & Plan. Sci., 101(1), 13-25, Mar. 1992.

Describes seasonal changes in surface temperature, rainfall and soil moisture expected from a doubling of CO2, based on the NCAR climate model. Outlines a probable scenario for sea level rise along the Indian coast.
