Global Warming and Climate Change

A publication prepared by researchers in the Department of Engineering and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University to explain the issue of global warming and climate change to a general audience. Issues addressed include: The science of global warming; the potential impacts of climate change, and the range of policy responses to the threat of climate change.
 
 
Environmental Effects of Ozone Depletion (1996 Executive Summary)
This United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) report comes between the Assessments of 1994 and 1998 on the Environmental Effects of Ozone Depletion. The Executive Summary presented here confirms previous research and presents new findings concerning: Ozone and UV changes; health effects of ozone depletion; and the effects of ozone depletion on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems as well as on biogeochemical cycles and air quality.

Our Changing Planet - The FY 1997 US Global Change Research Program

An annual report by the Committee on Environment and Natural Resources (CENR) of the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC). Our Changing Planet  describes the US Global Change Research Program for FY 1997. Federal Agency activities and funding levels are presented.

Program Guide to Federally Funded Environment and Natural Resources R&D

The Program Guide provides information on the types of research and development activities that are supported by Federal agencies in the area of environment and natural resources, the mechanisms used by agencies to select R&D recipients of Federal R&D dollars, and potential funding opportunities.

Climate Change and Human Health

A scientific assessment of the impact that climate change might have on the health of the world's population. Addressed to policy-makers as well as researchers, the report adopts a cautious approach, using the best scientific studies to provide reasonable prediction and realistic recommendations for action. Throughout the report, the complexities of climate change, the limitations of current research methodologies, and the consequent uncertainty of future predictions are repeatedly emphasized.

Geological Indicators of Rapid Environmental Change: An International Checklist

As a contribution to integrated environmental/ecological monitoring and state-of-the-environment reporting, the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS) through its Commission on Geological Sciences for Environmental Planning has developed the first version of a checklist of geoindicators. These have been compiled as tools for tracking changes in the dominantly abiotic components of forest, aquatic, desert, coastal, polar, mountain and other terrestrial ecosystems.

Our Changing Planet - The FY 1996 US Global Change Research Program

An annual report by the Committee on Environment and Natural Resources Research (CENR) of the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC). Our Changing Planet describes the US Global Change Research Program for FY 1996. Federal Agency activities and funding levels are presented.

  • FY 1996 USGCRP Program Summaries
    A companion to Our Changing Planet, the program summaries are agency-supplied descriptions which offer a detailed overview of the Federal agency programs included in the focused budget of the USGCRP.
