FROM VOLUME 6, NUMBER 11, NOVEMBER 1993
increase stalls: Data presented by David Keeling at a meeting
last summer show a dramatic drop in the rate of increase of
atmospheric CO2 which seemed to coincide with the
eruption of Mount Pinatubo. This outcome may hold valuable
lessons on the carbon cycle, discussed by J.L. Sarmiento in Nature,
pp. 697-698, Oct. 21.
ice: Glaciologists at a September meeting in Cambridge, UK,
discussed why an ice stream in the Antarctic has stopped moving.
(See ibid., pp. 608-609, Oct. 14 1993.) The problem also
interests climatologists because of implications for ice sheet
stability under climate change. A letter on the latter topic
appears ibid., p. 766, Aug. 26.
mixing: Recent field measurements confirm suspicions that
vertical mixing in the ocean occurs very slowly. (See Science
News, p. 117, Aug. 21 1993, and: "Variations in Snow on
Sea Ice: A Mechanism for Producing Climate Variations," T.S.
Ledley, ibid., 98(D6), 10,401-10,410, June 20,
