EARTHQUEST SCIENCE CAPSULES
The Spring 1991 issue of EarthQuest, A quarterly issued at no charge
by the Office for Interdisciplinary Earth Sciences (OIES), began a series of
pull-out Science Capsules. These are illustrated reviews of topics
related to global change in a form that can be easily reproduced for classroom
or reference use, and will appear in all future issues. The first capsule
comprises "Changes in Time in the Temperature of the Earth," and a
chart of the characteristics of "Atmospheric Gases That Are Radiatively
Active and of Significance to Global Change." Contact OIES, Univ. Corp.
