- IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE: PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL
Assessment of Possible Climate Change in the Australian Region
Based on an Intercomparison of General Circulation Modeling
Results," P.H. Whetton (CSIRO Div. Atmos. Res., Pvt. Bag 1,
Mordialloc, Vic., 3195 Australia), P.J. Rayner et al., J.
Clim., 7(3), 441-463, Mar. 1994.
Studies involving the GISS, GFDL, UKMO and CSIRO models were
intended to develop methods for verifying and using the results
of GCMs for regional climate studies, as well as to estimate
climatic impacts in the Australian region.
Climate Change Impacts in Snowmelt Basins," P.H. Gleick
(Pacific Inst. for Studies on Development, Environ. &
Security, Oakland, Calif.), A. Rango, K. Cooley, Eos, 75(9),
107, Mar. 1, 1994.
Summary of an April 1993 workshop (Santa Fe, New Mexico) on
hydrologic models for evaluating snowmelt impacts; gives research
of a Lowered Water Table on Nitrous Oxide Fluxes from Northern
Peatlands," P.J. Martikainen (Dept. Environ. Microbiol.,
Natl. Publ. Health Inst., POB 95, FIN-70701 Kuopio, Fin.), H.
Nykänen et al., Nature, 366(6450), 51-53, Nov. 4,
Compared N2O fluxes from virgin peatlands with those from
nearby sites that were drained 30-50 years ago and thus represent
the drier conditions that may result from greenhouse warming.
Concluded that the peatlands will not exert a significant climate
feedback from N2O emissions.
Walk Expectancies for Recent Global Climate, and in an Enhanced
Greenhouse Warming," A.H. Gordon (Sch. Earth Sci., Flinders
Univ. S. Australia, POB 2100, Adelaide SA 5001, Australia),
J.A.T. Bye, Global & Planet. Change, 8,
Suggests that the interannual variance and the ratio between
its predictable and random proportions would change with enhanced
of Climate Change on Water Resources in the Delaware River
Basin," D.M. Wolock (USGS, 4821 Quail Crest Pl., Lawrence KS
66049), G.J. McCabe Jr. et al., Water Resour. Bull., 29(3),
475-486, June 1993.
The estuary's salt front would be sensitive to sea level rise,
and levels in New York City reservoirs would be sensitive to
changes in temperature and precipitation. However, the effects of
natural variability would overwhelm long-term effects of
temperature and precipitation trends.
Variability and Air Quality in the Great Plains of North
America," S. LaDochy (Dept. Geog. & Urban Anal., Calif.
State Univ., Los Angeles CA 90032), Clim. Bull., 26(3),
177-187, Dec. 1992.
Considers the potential for increased dust levels, including
unhealthy levels of respirable particulates, due to a predicted
warmer and drier climate.
