Item #d96may30

Special Section. J. Geophys. Res., 100(D12), Dec. 20, 1995. Contains over 25 papers on the First ISLSCP Field Experiment (FIFE) in the areas of remote sensing and modeling.

"First International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project (ISLSCP) Field Experiment (FIFE) in 1995," F.G. Hall (NASA-Goddard, MC 923, Greenbelt MD 20771), P.J. Sellers, 25,383-25,395. An overview summarizing the special section papers and discussing the significant contributions of FIFE to understanding the role of Earth surface characteristics in the climate system.

Item #d96may31

"The Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS): An Overview and Early Results from the 1994 Field Year," P. Sellers (address above), F. Hall et al., Bull. Amer. Meteor. Soc., 76(9), 1549-1577, Sep. 1995.

BOREAS, a large scale international field experiment, is intended to collect data on the exchanges of radiative energy, heat, water, CO2 and trace gases between the boreal forest and the lower atmosphere. Preliminary analysis indicates that the area-averaged photosynthetic capacity of boreal forests is much less than that of temperate forests to the south. The effects of frozen soils and the strong physiological control of evapotranspiration do not seem to be well represented in post operational atmospheric GCMs.
