EARTH SYSTEM SCIENCE


Item #d91sep78

Greenhouse-Gas-Induced Climatic Change (Devel. Atmos. Sci., Vol. 19), M.E. Schlesinger, Ed., 636 pp., 1991, $137/Dfl. 240 (Elsevier).

Proceedings of the workshop (Amherst, Mass., May 1989). Expected to be of interest to researchers and students in several areas including global change and climate impact assessment. Reviews methods, findings and difficulties of interpreting observations, climate model simulations, and current methods of detecting climate change.


Item #d91sep79

Biogeochemistry: An Analysis of Global Change, W.H. Schlesinger, 443 pp., 1991, $75 hbk./$39.95 pbk. (Academic). Reviewed by J.C.G. Walker in Science, pp. 686-687, Aug. 9, 1991.

Examines changes from geologic past to present in the global cycles of water, carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur, as well as discussions of topics such as the origin, composition and stability of major and trace biogenic gases.


Item #d91sep80

Paleoclimatology (Oxford Monographs on Geol. & Geophys., 18), T.J. Crowley, G.R. North, 346 pp., 1991, $59.95 (Oxford/Clarendon). Reviewed by J.T. Overpeck in Science, pp. 803-804, Aug. 16, 1991.

Interdisciplinary in approach, covering models and basic climatology and past climatic change on time scales of decades, centuries and longer.


Item #d91sep81

Diversity of Environmental Biogeochemistry (Devel. Geochem., 6), J. Berthelin, 550 pp., 1991, $143/Dfl. 250 (Elsevier).

Consists of 50 contributions from the 8th International Symposium on Environmental Biogeochemistry. Includes a section on organic matter and carbon cycles in recent sediments.


Item #d91sep82

Global Ocean Surface Temperature Atlas, 1991 (UK Meteor. Off.). Available in print (£70) and digitized forms. The printed atlas contains historical SST data and color plates. The digitized version includes data unavailable for the print version and a quality controlled and corrected SST data set on 5 scale dating to 1856.


Item #d91sep83

Isotopes and Climates, R. Bowen, 488 pp., 1990, $136/£68 (Elsevier).

Contains sections on "The Big Heat?" (greenhouse effect, ozone depletion, fossil fuel combustion) and "Isotopes and the Global Carbon Cycle Now and in the Quaternary" (NOAA/GMCC measurements, simulations of CO2 distribution, past CO2 levels from ice cores, tree ring analysis). Also covers more distant geologic time periods.


Item #d91sep84

Soils on a Warmer Earth: Effects of Expected Climate Change on Soil Processes, with Emphasis on the Tropics and Sub-Tropics (Devel. in Soil Sci., Vol. 20), H.W. Scharpenseel, M. Schomaker, A. Ayoub, Eds., 274 pp., 1990, $103/Dfl. 180 (Elsevier). Twenty-one papers from an international workshop (Nairobi, Feb. 1990).


Item #d91sep85

Remote Sensing of Biosphere Functioning (Ecol. Studies, Vol. 79), R.J. Hobbs, H.A. Mooney, Eds., 321 pp., 1990, DM 198 (Springer). Reviewed by J.B. Stewart in Intl. J. Clim., p. 461, May-June 1991.

Proceedings of a U.S.-Australia workshop (1988, Honolulu, Hawaii) that considered the current state of the use of remote sensing for vegetation and landscape, variables measured, and fluxes.


Item #d91sep86

Studies in Geophysics: Sea Level Change, Nat. Res. Council, 234 pp., 1990 (Nat. Acad. Press). Reviewed by D.B. Enfield in Bull. Amer. Meteor. Soc., pp. 1282-1283, Aug. 1991.

Developed from a 1983 conference, with references generally prior to 1985. Gives perspective on long-term sea-level change associated with other geophysical phenomena. Examines these changes as a consequence of and as an agent for climate change.


Item #d91sep87

Land Surface-Atmospheric Interactions for Climate Modeling--Observations, Models and Analysis, E.F. Wood, Ed., 314 pp., 1990, $129/£73/Dfl. 210 (Kluwer). Reprinted from Surveys Geophys., 12(1-3), 1991.

Evolved from a workshop (Princeton, N.J.) that explored the status of land surface parameterizations within climate models and how observational data can be used to assess these parameterizations and improve models. The first section is devoted to an overview of recent or planned field experiments worldwide; the second to the appropriate scale for modeling land processes.


Item #d91sep88

Climatic Change and Plant Genetic Resources, M.T. Jackson, B.V. Fordlloyd, M.L. Parry, Eds., 1990 (Belhaven).


Item #d91sep89

The Dynamics of the Coupled Atmosphere and Ocean, H. Charnock, S.G.H. Philander, Eds., 161 pp., 1989, £40 (Roy. Soc.). Originally appeared in Phil. Trans. Roy. Soc. London, A329, 153-315. Reviewed by N.C. Wells in Quart. J. Roy. Meteor. Soc., July 1990 Part B, pp. 1260-1261; by M.E. Luther in Bull. Amer. Meteor. Soc., pp. 250-251, Feb. 1991.

Consists of papers from a Royal Society discussion meeting (Dec. 1988). A majority of papers deal with ENSO; others deal with mid- and high-latitude climate variability, variability in Northern Hemisphere climate, building of a coupled GCM, computation of air-sea fluxes from operational weather forecasting models.
