A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999
FROM VOLUME 7, NUMBER 1, JANUARY 1994
- IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE: MIXED TOPICS
of the Mild Winters and Hot Summers in the United Kingdom in 1988
to 1990, M. Cannell, C. Pitcairn, Eds., Sep. 1993, £15
Work funded by the U.K. Dept. of Environment examined the
environmental effects of several hot summers as analogs for the
impacts of possible future global warming, based on studies by
more than 100 scientists, agriculturists, horticulturists,
naturalists and others.

Describes several phases of this study of climate change
impacts, including scenario development, population growth
modeling, impacts on remote communities, traditional knowledge of
climate, and modeling of river freeze-up and landslides. (A
newsletter on the continuing impact study is also available.)
Coastal Vulnerability Study, Port of Melbourne Auth. for the

Considers the potential effects of mean sea level rises of 0.3
and 0.5 meters. Identifies most vulnerable areas through detailed
classification of the coastline into landform types and computer
modeling of selected beaches. At most risk were found to be
narrow sandy beaches and barriers, low-lying estuaries, mud
flats, wetlands and soft sedimentary rock cliffs.
