Item #d90jan106

"Depleted Ring Around Ozone Hole," R. Monastersky, Sci. News, p. 324, Nov. 18, 1989. Recent analysis of 1987 aircraft data by NOAA scientists indicates that chemical reactions destroy a significant amount of ozone outside the main ozone hole over Antarctica; it is unclear whether the reactions involve human-made chemicals. (See articles in Nature, Nov. 16, by Proffitt, p. 233, and Brasseur, p. 225, listed in PROF. PUBS./OF GEN. INTEREST, this GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE DIGEST issue--Jan. 1990.)


Item #d90jan107

"Claim of Dramatic Global Warming Comes under Attack," New Scientist, p. 31, Nov. 18, 1989. Researchers from NOAA and the British Meteorological Office find that the global warming trend in sea temperatures, recently reported by Alan Strong, did not account for pronounced El Niņo events in 1982 and 1983; they find no significant trend between 1982 and 1988. (See Reynolds article in Nature, p. 728, Oct. 26, listed in PROF. PUBS./TREND ANALYSIS, this GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE DIGEST issue--Jan. 1990.)


Item #d90jan108

"CFCs: A Larger Greenhouse Role," Eos, pp. 875, 885, Oct. 3. Lengthy discussion of recent results showing that CFCs are responsible for a quarter of greenhouse warming over the last decade, more than previously estimated, and would have even greater effect today if production had not declined in 1974. (See Hansen article in J. Geophys. Res., p. 16,417, Nov. 20, listed in PROF. PUBS./OF GEN. INTEREST, this GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE DIGEST issue--Jan. 1990.)


Item #d90jan109

"Fertilizers and Acid Rain are Warming the World Too," New Scientist, p. 29, Oct. 7, 1989. Research reported from the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory shows that natural methane destruction may be suppressed by high inputs of nitrogen, including fertilized farmland and forests receiving acid rain. (See Steudler article in Nature, p. 314, Sep. 28, listed in GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE DIGEST, PROF. PUBS./ATMOS. METHANE, Dec. 1989; also Sci. News, p. 213, Sep. 30.)
