IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE: METHODS
of an Airmass-Based Regional Climate Change Scenario,"
W.A.R. Brinkmann (Dept. Geog., Univ. Wisconsin, Madison WI
53706), Theor. Appl. Clim., 47(3), 129-136, 1993.
Describes a new approach that assigns each day in the observed
and model-produced records to one of three classes defined by the
upper-level steering flow for air masses. Application using a
lake evaporative model shows a 19% reduction in the evaporative
power of air flowing over Lake Superior, based on a GCM scenario.
from Clim. Change, 23(4), Apr. 1993:
"Assessing the Effects of Global Climate Change: The
PAN-EARTH Project Series," M.A. Harwell (Rosenstiel Sch.
Marine Sci., Univ. Miami, Miami FL 33149), 287-292. Introduces a
series of articles to be published over the next several issues.
"Use of General Circulation Model Output in the Creation
of Climate Change Scenarios for Impact Analysis," A. Robock
(Dept. Meteor., Univ. Maryland, College Park MD 20741), R.P.
Turco et al., 293-335. This first in the series of PAN-EARTH
articles combines general circulation model output with knowledge
of regional climate to predict the response to CO2
doubling. Applies the technique to China, Sub-Saharan Africa and
in the Relationship between Monthly and Daily Temperatures across
the United States," P.J. Robinson (Dept. Geog., Univ. North
Carolina, Chapel Hill NC 27599), Phys. Geog., 13(3),
191-205, July-Sep. 1992.
Uses a linear regression approach to study this relationship
for 126 stations in the U.S. for 1950-1986. Considers the
implications of using extrapolations of past data for estimates
of future conditions.
