U.S. Dept. of Energy. Two new major research initiatives of the
U.S. DOE relate to developing data and models of processes by which changes in
the Earth's radiative balance may change climate. The Atmospheric Radiation
Measurement (ARM) Program will establish instrument networks for evaluating
parameterizations of cloud and radiative effects in atmospheric models. The
program plan was listed in Global Climate Change Digest, REPORTS/DOE
DOCUMENTS, May 1990. For information contact Gerald Stokes, Pacific Northwest
Lab., POB 999, Richland WA 99352 (509-375-3816).
The Computer Hardware, Advanced Mathematics, and Model Physics
(CHAMMP) initiative will develop over the next ten years an advanced climate
model intended to eventually carry out detailed climate calculations at least
104 times faster than is now done on the CRAY-2 computer. For information
contact Michael MacCracken, Lawrence Livermore Nat. Lab., POB 808 (L-262),
Livermore CA 94550 (415-422-1826).
U.K. Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. Proposals are
solicited on 1- to 3-year projects to begin in 1991-92. Climate change topics
include sensitivity of U.K. farming systems, impact of CO2 and water regime
changes, insect pests and disease vectors, methane emission from cattle, N2O
emissions from arable and pastoral soils. Due date Oct. 15, 1990.
