PROFESSIONAL PUBLICATIONS... TEMPERATURE TRENDS


Item #d94nov81

"Temperature Variations in the Middle and Upper Stratosphere: 1979-1992," J.D. Lambeth (Sci. Applic. Intl. Corp., 1 Enterprise Pkwy., S. 250, Hampton VA 23666), L.B. Callis, J. Geophys. Res., 99(D10), 20,701-20,712, Oct. 20, 1994.

The observed temperature variations, which appear to be of natural origin, must be considered when seeking temperature trends caused by the increase of greenhouse gases that affect the radiative balance of the Earth-atmosphere system or stratospheric ozone.


Item #d94nov82

"Arctic 'Greenhouse Effect,'" J.-P. Blanchet (Dépt. Phys., Univ. Québec, POB 8888, Montréal PQ H3C 3P8, Can.), Nature, 371(6496), 383, Sep. 29, 1994.

Surface cooling observed in the Arctic over the past few decades, in apparent contradiction to predicted global warming, may result from increased long-range transport of acidic haze.


Item #d94nov83

Comment on "Quantifying Global Warming from the Retreat of Glaciers," S. Hastenrath (Dept. Atmos. & Oceanic Sci., Univ. Wisconsin, Madison WI 53706), Science, 265(5180), 1790-1791, Sep. 23, 1994.


Item #d94nov84

"Estimation of Climatic Transition in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) in Global Warming Perspectives," S. Qureshi (Dept. Geog., Aligarh Muslim Univ., Aligarh UP 20 2002, India), N. Khan, GeoJournal, 33(4), 423-432, Aug. 1994.

Data for 26 years showed a mutual trend in all temperature parameters measured, and agreement with global warming model projections based on CO2 concentration changes in the atmosphere.


Item #d94nov85

"Climatic Warming in the Central Antarctic Peninsula Area," P. Stark (Brit. Antarctic Surv., High Cross, Madingley Rd., Cambridge CB3 0ET, UK), Weather, 49(6), 215-220, June 1994.

A 44-year temperature record at Faraday shows a warming trend of about 2.7·C over the period. Climate models suggest that the marginal sea-ice zone is a region that may exhibit a large response to global warming. (See related item in New Scientist, p. 11, June 25.)

Specialized Papers


Item #d94nov86

"Observation of a Monthly Variation in Global Surface Temperature Data," C.H. Best (Inst. Sys. Eng. & Informatics, Joint Res. Ctr. Eur. Commission, I-21020 Ispra, Italy), Geophys. Res. Lett., 21(22), 2369-2372, Nov. 1, 1994.
