Item #d94mar25

Special issue: Ambio, 23(1), Feb. 1994, consists of 18 papers presented at the Third IGBP Scientific Advisory Council Meeting (Ensenada, Mexico, Jan. 1993), by researchers associated with the IGBP (International Geosphere-Biosphere Program), the World Climate Research Program, and the developing Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change Program. Those of more general interest and with implications for policy are given first, with annotations. For single issue copies contact Royal Swedish Acad. Sci., Box 50005, S-104 05 Stockholm, Swed.

"Interactions and Collaboration in Global Change Across the Social and Natural Sciences," R.B. Miller (Consortium for Intl. Earth Sci. Info. Network (CIESIN), 2250 Pierce Rd., University Center MI 48710), 19-24. In its second decade, the study of global change will require truly collaborative (as opposed to cooperative, but partitioned multidisciplinary) research on the interactions of physical, biological and anthropogenic processes. Scientists must alter the way they think about global data, and take the time needed to address the problems.

"Science and Policy Making," B. Bolin (Kvarnåsvägen 6, S-184 45 Österskär, Swed.), 25-29. Discusses demands on the scientist serving in the role of science advisor for policy in the context of climate change. The advisor must recognize political or other constraints under which the policy maker is acting, as well as different value systems at the international level.

"The Impact of Rising CO2 Concentrations on the Terrestrial Biosphere," H.A. Mooney (Dept. Biol. Sci., Stanford Univ., Stanford CA 94305), G.W. Koch, 74-76. Despite much research progress on the impacts of increased temperature and CO2 on the Earth's primary production, we still need information on how whole ecosystems will respond. Experiments within the IGBP on this problem are described.

"Perspectives on Policy," F. Bretherton (Space Sci. Eng. Ctr., Univ. Wisconsin, 1225 W. Dayton St., Madison WI 53706), 96-97. A natural scientist discusses the different perspectives that appear to underlie conflicting agendas for mitigation, adaptation and response strategies for global environmental change. Consequent information needs could have a far-reaching influence on the future formulation of the IGBP.

"Planetary Metabolism: Understanding the Carbon Cycle," B. Moore III (Inst. for Study of Earth, Oceans & Space, Morse Hall, Univ. New Hampshire, Durham NH 03824), B.H. Braswell Jr., 4-12.

"Global Change Models--A Physical Perspective," G.A. McBean (Dept. Oceanog., Univ. British Columbia, 6270 Univ. Blvd., Vancouver BC V6T 1Z4, Can.), 13-18.

"Palaeo-Perspectives: Reducing Uncertainties in Global Change?" C. Lorius (Phys. Inst., Univ. Bern, Sidlerstr. 5, 3012 Bern, Switz.), H. Oeschger, 30-36.

"Palaeo-Perspectives: Changes in Terrestrial Ecosystems," F.A. Street-Perrott (Environ. Change Unit, Univ. Oxford, 1a Mansfield Rd., Oxford OX1 3TB, UK), 37-43.

"Response of a Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Model to Increasing Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide," S. Manabe (GFDL, POB 308, Princeton NJ 08542), R.J. Stouffer, M.J. Spelman, 44-49.

"The Interactive Atmosphere: Global Atmospheric-Biospheric Chemistry," R.G. Prinn (Dept. Earth Sci., Rm. 54-1312, Mass. Inst. Technol., Cambridge MA 02139), 50-61.

"Biogeochemical Interactions in the Equatorial Pacific," R.T. Barber (Museum of Comparative Zool., Harvard Univ., 26 Oxford St., Cambridge MA 02138), J.W. Murray Jr., J.J. McCarthy, 62-66.

"Landscape to Regional-Scale Responses of Terrestrial Ecosystems to Global Change," B.H. Walker (CSIRO Div. Wildlife, POB 84, Lyneham, ACT 2602, Canberra, Australia), 67-73.

"A Vegetation Classification Logic Based on Remote Sensing for Use in Global Biogeochemical Models," S.W. Running (Sch. Forestry, Univ. Montana, Missoula MT 58912), T.R. Loveland, L.L. Pierce, 77-81.

"Large-Scale Experimental and Modeling Studies of Hydrological Processes," W.J. Shuttleworth (Dept. Hydrol., Univ. Tucson, Tucson AZ 85721), 82-86.

"Changes in General Circulation and Its Influence on Precipitation Trends in Central America: Costa Rica," A. Brenes Vargas (Dept. Información, Inst. Meteor. Nacional, San José, Costa Rica), V.F. Saborio Trejos, 87-90.

"Global Land Use/Land Cover Change: Towards an Integrated Study," B.L. Turner II (G.P. Marsh Inst., Clark Univ., 950 Main St., Worcestor MA 01610), W.B. Meyer, D.L. Skole, 91-95.

"Development of the Inter-American Institute for Global Change Research," F.H. Garcia Brum (Juan Carlos Gomez 1255, Montevideo 11000, Uruguay), 98-100.

"The Role of the European Union in Global Change Research," J.-P. Contzen (Joint Res. Ctr., European Commission, 200 rue de la Loi, B-1049, Brussels, Belg.), A. Ghazi, 101-103.
