Item #d90jul32

The Environment/Economy Link in Alberta and the Implications under Climate Change, 1989. Completed under contract for the Can. Climate Ctr. by (and full report available only from) Acres Intl. Ltd., 10201 Southport Rd. SW, S. 500, Calgary, Alta. T2W 4X9, Can.

Objectives were to quantify recent climatic anomalies and associated economic data, to identify analogies between recent anomalies and general circulation model forecasts of a doubled CO2 scenario, and to deduce potential economic impacts under future climate change. Based on this approach, calendar year 1988 was selected to determine environment-economic linkages with respect to agriculture, forestry, energy use and other activities.


Item #d90jul33

Implications of Climate Change for the New Zealand Forestry Industry, Jan. 1990. Available from Patrick H.B. Aldwell, For. Res. Inst., Min. For., Priv. Bag 3020, Rotorua, N.Z.

A contribution to the New Zealand Climate Change Program, which summarizes a survey of the forest industry, government, and outside specialists. The most significant effect would be the influence on the country's competitors through increased lumber supply from high-latitude northern markets. New Zealand productivity would increase if climate warms, and shorter rotations would be encouraged. (See World Clim. Change Rep., p. 18, Mar. 1990.)


Item #d90jul34

Effects of Air Temperature on Atmospheric CO2-Plant Growth Relationships (DOE/ER-0450T), S.G. Allen, S.B. Idso et al., 61 pp., Apr. 1990. Available from Carbon Dioxide Info. Analysis Ctr., U.S. Dept. Energy, Oak Ridge Nat. Lab., Oak Ridge TN 37831 (615-574-0390).

Prepared under contract by eight authors at four institutions, this is a review of relevant research, emphasizing experiments conducted in outdoor, CO2-enriched atmospheres. Beneficial effects for C3 species of CO2 enrichment increase with air temperature, but there is wide variation among species. CO2 also appears to interact with other climatic variables such as solar radiation; further research is needed. Differences in CO2-temperature interactions between C3 and C4 species are discussed.


Item #d90jul35

UNEP Mediterranean reports: The following documents have been prepared by the Mediterranean Task Team, one of eight created since 1987 in the UNEP Programme on Implications of Climatic Changes on Regional Seas. Specific case studies of the deltas of the Nile, Po and Ebro Rivers are also available, and other reports are in preparation. To obtain information or copies contact UNEP Coord. Unit for the Mediterranean Action Plan, Leoforos Vassileos Konstantinou 48, 11635 Athens, Greece (telex: 222611 MEDU GR). (From NCAR Network News, Winter 1990.)

An Overview of Implications of Expected Climate Changes in the Mediterranean Region, G. Sestini et al.

Bibliography on Effects of Climatic Changes and Related Topics, A. Davakis, Ed.


Item #d90jul36

PAN-EARTH/FONAIAP Workshop on Crop Model Training and Calibration--Maracay, Venezuela, 13-16 Nov. 1989, 37 pp., Apr. 1990. Available from Global Environ. Prog., 407 Wing Hall, Cornell Univ., Ithaca NY 14853 (607-255-5186).

The workshop was a contribution to the PAN-Earth Project national case studies of effects of climatic change and nuclear winter. Conducted in cooperation with the Fondo Naciónal de Investigaciónes Agropecuarias (FONAIAP), the Venezuelan agricultural research institute, it focused on application of the agricultural models being used in the case studies to local crops and conditions.
