PROFESSIONAL PUBLICATIONS...
IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE: REGIONAL STUDIES


Item #d93dec113

"Greenhouse Effect and Climate Change--Implications for Denmark," J. Fenger, A.M.K. Jorgensen et al., Ambio, 22(6), 378-385, Sep. 1993.

Many impacts on Denmark can be managed through planned adjustment. But change may be too rapid for the adjustment of some animal and plant species, resulting in temporary instability and changes in the composition of species.


Item #d93dec114

"Climate Change and Transportation in Northern Canada: An Integrated Impact Assessment," S. Lonergan (Dept. Geog., Univ. Victoria, Victoria BC, Can.), R. DiFrancesco, M.-K. Woo, Clim. Change, 24(4), 331-351, Aug. 1993.

Used a combination of stochastic modeling, econometric modeling and input-output analysis to estimate impacts in the Mackenzie River Valley, Northwest Territories, such as river ice conditions and economic impacts. Economic impacts from changes in transportation will be relatively minor.


Item #d93dec115

"Changes in Climate and Levels of Lake Michigan: Shoreline Impacts at Chicago," S.A. Changnon (Illinois State Water Surv., Champaign IL 61820), ibid., 23(3), 213-230, Mar. 1993.

If average lake level is lowered 1.0 m during the next 50 years, shoreline impacts will not be severe and would cost about $100 million. However, if the level is lowered >1.5 m during that time, larger economic impacts will occur, costing $3-35 billion.


Item #d93dec116

"Greenhouse-Warmed Europe: Thermoregulatory Criteria for Future Indoor Climate Management," A. Auliciems (Appl. Clim. Res. Unit, Univ. Queensland, Queensland 4072, Australia), Intl. J. BioMeteor., 36(4), 201-209, 1992.

Addresses thermal comfort in a changing climate, including clothing choices and energy-efficient buildings.


Item #d93dec117

Correspondence on the applicability of GCM estimates to scenarios of global warming in the MacKenzie Valley (Canada) area, Clim. Bull., 26(3), 205-210, Dec. 1992.
