A fully coupled model shows irregular oscillations of the
North Atlantic thermohaline circulation with a 50-year time
Stirring Tale of Mixing," C. Garrett (Dept. Phys., Univ.
Victoria, Victoria BC V8W 3P6, Can.), 670-671. Discusses the
implications for modeling ocean mixing of the paper on p. 701 of
the same issue.
Biophysics and Physiology Matter in Ecosystem Models?" G.B.
Bonan (NCAR, POB 3000, Boulder CO 80307), Clim. Change, 24(4),
281-285, Aug. 1993.
An editorial stressing the need for ecologists to reconcile
the physiological and biophysical discrepancies between their
simple models and the more detailed parameterizations used in
Project for Intercomparison of Land-Surface Parameterization
Schemes," A. Henderson-Sellers (Clim. Impacts Ctr.,
Macquarie Univ., Sydney, Australia), Z.-L. Yang, R.E. Dickinson, Bull.
Amer. Meteor. Soc., 74(7), 1335-1349, July 1993.
The significant differences in the available land-surface
schemes for global climate models are comparable to other
recognized differences such as cloud parameterization. Presents
the science plan for the first stage of the project, which
involves those who develop and use code, and those who can
provide data sets for validation.
Cover Model for Global Climate Simulations," B. Loth (M.
Planck Inst. Meteor., Bundesstr. 55, D-2000 Hamburg 13, Ger.),
H.-F. Graf, J.M. Oberhuber, J. Geophys. Res., 98(D6),
10,451-10,464, June 20, 1993. Presents an efficient, 1-D
multilayer model of snow cover with examples of application.
of Global Climate Change Estimates to Regional Scales: An
Application to Iberian Rainfall in Wintertime," H. von
Storch (address immed. above), E. Zorita, U. Cubasch, J. Clim., 6(6),
1161-1171, June 1993.
Presents a statistical method for deducing regional-scale
features from GCM simulations, and applies it using two increased
Asian Summer Monsoon Variability in a Model with Doubled
Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Concentration," G.A. Meehl (NCAR,
POB 3000, Boulder CO 80307), W.M. Washington, Science, 260(5111),
1101-1104, May 21, 1993.
Increased surface temperatures are associated with increased
interannual monsoon variations in a global climate model, an
association also observed in observations.
of IAP AGCM to Global SST Anomalies--An Equivalent Study of
CO2-Induced Climate Changes," W. Wangqiu (Inst. Atmos.
Phys., Chinese Acad. Sci., Beijing 100080, China), Chinese J.
Atmos. Sci., 17(2), 141-147, 1993.
Positive SST anomalies are prescribed as a surrogate for
increased CO2 in a GCM, permitting the study of associated
physical responses in the atmosphere such as cloud distribution,
convection and precipitation.

T.E. Graedel (AT&T Bell Labs., Murray Hill NJ 07974), T.S.
Bates et al., Global Biogeochem. Cycles, 7(1),
