Item #d93nov68

For the following two reports contact the Nat. Energy Info. Ctr., Energy Info. Admin. (EIA), Rm. 1F-048, Forrestal Bldg., Washington DC 20585 (202-586-8800). or U.S. GPO:

Emissions of Greenhouse Gases in the United States 1985-1990 (DOE/EIA-0573), Oct. 1993. Used as a baseline for the new National Action Plan, this gives detailed estimates broken down by economic sectors and includes carbon emissions for 1991. CO2 emissions grew 1.4 % per year during 1985-1990, about half the rate of economic growth. (Discussed and reviewed extensively in Energy, Econ. & Clim. Change, pp. 11-13, Oct. 1993.)

Annual Energy Outlook 1993, with Projections to 2010, Jan. 1993. An analysis including key provisions of the Energy Policy Act of 1992 finds that U.S. CO2 emissions could grow 22% between 1990 and 2010 in one of seven economic scenarios examined. (Discussed in ibid., pp. 13-14, Jan. 1993.)

Item #d93nov69

Canada's Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Estimates for 1990 (EPS 5/AP/4), A.P. Jaques, 1992, no charge. Publications, Conserv. and Protection, Environ. Can., Ottawa ON K1A 0H3, Ca.

Categorizes emissions by various activities, and includes an estimate of the carbon budget as it relates to biomass-related emissions. Biomass fuels account for 11% of Canadian CO2 emissions from energy production.

Item #d93nov70

Illinois Inventory of Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks: 1990 (ILENR/RE-PR-93/04), 137 pp., Sep. 1993, no charge. Obtain from ENR Clearinghouse, Illinois Dept. Energy & Nat. Resour., 325 W. Adams St., Rm. 300, Springfield IL 62704 (217-785-2800).

Report of a project to test the U.S. EPA methodology for developing state-level baseline inventories of greenhouse gas emissions and sinks. Identifies major sources of CO2 , CH4, N2O, NOx, CO and NMVOCs, outlining methods used and identifying problems encountered in the inventory process. Emissions are projected to the year 2000.

Item #d93nov71

Role of Human Activity and Land Use Change in Atmospheric Chemistry and Air Quality. Revision 1 (CONF-9107235-1-Rev.1), J.E. Penner (Lawrence Livermore Lab., Calif.), 45 pp., July 1992. NTIS: DE92-019622; $17.

Report of a conference sponsored by the U.S. Dept. Energy (Snowmass, Colo., July 1991). Discusses the potential for projecting future emissions based on expected changes in various categories of land use, and the considerable uncertainties involved.

Item #d93nov72

Carbon Emissions and Sequestration in Forests: Case Studies from Seven Developing Countries, W. Makundi et al., Aug. 1992. Vol. 1, Summary (LBL-32119), 42 pp.; Vol. 2, Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon (LBL-32758), 73 pp.; Vol. 3, India and China (LBL-32759), 55 pp. Contact Lawrence Berkeley Lab., 1 Cyclotron Rd., Berkeley CA 94720 (510-486-7489), or NTIS.

Reports on data from the countries of the Tropical Forestry and Global Climate Change Research Network, established to meet the IPCC need for estimates of greenhouse gas balances related to forest activities. Estimates from China have rarely been included in past studies. Individual volumes will eventually cover Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Nigeria, Malaysia, Mexico and Thailand, locations of most of the deforestation of closed moist forests.

Item #d93nov73

Greenhouse Gases from Small-Scale Combustion in Developing Countries--A Pilot Study in Manila (EPA/600/R-92/005), K.R. Smith et al. (Environ. & Policy Inst., Honolulu, Hawaii), 1992. NTIS: PB92-139369; $19.

Results show that small devices used for cooking in most of the world's households may represent a more significant source than thought. A more comprehensive study is planned for India and China.

Item #d93nov74

Halogen Emissions from Coal Combustion (IEACR/45), L.L. Sloss, 62 pp., 1992, 60 member/180 nonmember countries of IEA Coal Res.
