Item #d94sep44

IGBP in Action: Work Plan 1994-1998 (Rep. No. 28), 151 pp., 1994.

Provides researchers, funding agencies and others with a current synthesis of what the IGBP is doing, why it is important, the scientific products expected, and the meaning of individual projects within the context of the whole program. It updates an earlier document (Rep. No. 12, 1990) and includes specific program details that were necessarily discussed only generally in that report. It gives well-defined plans for the next two or three years that can realistically be funded; plans given for a five-year period are more speculative and assume an increased level of support, the need for which is presented here.

Item #d94sep45

Biospheric Aspects of the Hydrological Cycle [BAHC]: The Operational Plan (Rep. No. 27), BAHC Core Proj. Off. (Inst. Meteor., Freie Univ. Berlin), 103 pp., 1993.

BAHC is an interdisciplinary project addressing how vegetation interacts with the physical processes of the hydrologic cycle, a crucial issue in GCMs. This report presents the BAHC research plan, oriented around four research foci: soil-vegetation-atmosphere transfer models; regional-scale studies of land-surface properties and fluxes; the temporal and spatial variability of biosphere-hydrosphere interactions; and the "Weather Generator," a collection of methods for downscaling climatic information from the coarse grid scale of GCMs to the smaller scale of ecological and hydrologic models .

Item #d94sep46

Proceedings of Asian Symposium on Global Environmental Change (CGER-1008-'93), Japan Natl. Comm. for IGBP et al., 140 pp., 1993. Available from IGBP or Ctr. for Global Environ. Res., Japan Environ. Agency, 16-2, Onogawa, Tsukuba, Ibaraki 305, Japan.

More than 170 scientists from the Asia-Pacific region concerned with IGBP met in Tokyo (Dec. 1992) to further cooperative research. This document contains reports of national research programs from 10 countries, reports on eight IGBP core projects, and a proposal for a regional research network.

Item #d94sep47

IGBP Directory 1994, 156 pp., 1994.

Prepared to facilitate contacts among the growing numbers of researchers and others interested in global change. Includes members of the Scientific Committee for the IGBP, the IGBP Secretariat, national committees, regional information centers, and other committees and liaisons. Gives details of and contact persons for core projects and framework activities.
