The Finnish Research Program on Climate Change (SILMU) is a six year program which began in 1990, emphasizing the quantification of anticipated climatic changes, assessment of effects on ecosystems, and development of mitigation and adaptation strategies. It includes over 70 individual projects, ranging from atmospheric chemistry to sociology, and involves over 180 scientists.

The following recent reports are available from The Academy of Finland/SILMU, POB 57, 00551 Helsinki, Finland (fax: +358 0 7748 8299). In addition, information on SILMU can be obtained from Internet, including abstracts of all projects and a complete publications list. (Go to Finnish Gophers and to item 31, Academy of Finland.)

Documents and synthesizes presentations and discussion at an international workshop on climatic scenarios in general (Espoo, Finland, June 1993), organized by SILMU. Themes include climate prediction, techniques of scenario construction, and the use of scenarios in impact assessment. Application to Finland is discussed.

Carbon Balance of the World's Forested Ecosystems: Towards a Global Assessment, M. Kanninen, Ed., 271 pp., 1993. Proceedings of a workshop (Joensuu, Finland, May 1992) held to review the role of world forests in the carbon cycle, and to discuss approaches for assessing the carbon cycle in forested ecosystems and the exchange of CO2 and other greenhouse gases between the atmosphere and forests.
