Global Climate Change Digest

A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999


Online Books and Reports

The availability of full-text documentation via the Internet is growing rapidly and is proving to be an enormous tool to help bridge the information gaps among researchers, policymakers, educators, managers, and others concerned with global climate change. This is bringing more efficient and equitable access to critical information. We list here some major collections, followed by a small sample of available publications related to climate change.
