  • IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE: MIXED TOPICS

Item #d94jan92

"Impacts of the Mild Winters and Hot Summers in the United Kingdom in 1988 to 1990, M. Cannell, C. Pitcairn, Eds., Sep. 1993, £15 ($22.50), HMSO.

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.


Item #d94jan93

Environmental Impact Study--Great Whale Hydroelectric Project, 5,000 pp. (300 pp. summary), Aug. 1993. Dept. Public Relations, Hydro-Quebec, 680 Sherbrooke St. West, Montreal QB H3A 2M7, Can. Studies on greenhouse gas emissions are included.


Item #d94jan94

CSERGE working papers; all 1993:

Depletion of the Ozone Layer and Change in Incidence of Disease, G. Bentham, 25 pp.

The Potential Effects of Climate Change on Winter Mortality in England and Wales, I. Langford, G. Bentham.

The Economics of Sea Level Rise: Vulnerability Assessment of a U.K. Coastal Zone, R. Turner et al.

Global Environmental Change and Health, G. Bentham, 19 pp. (£2/$4).

Key Issues in the Economics of Sea Level Rise, R. Turner et al. (£2/$4).


Item #d94jan95

Mackenzie Basin Impact Study: Interim Report #1, Mar. 1993, no charge. Commun. Br., Rm. 210, Environ. Can., Twin Atria No. 2, 4999-98th Ave., Edmonton AB T6B 2X3, Can.

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.)


Item #d94jan96

Victorian Coastal Vulnerability Study, Port of Melbourne Auth. for the Victoria State Govt., 228 pp., June 1993, $10. Environ. Protec. Auth., GPO Box 4395QQ, Melbourne 3001, Victoria, Australia (tel: 03-628-5422; fax: 03-628-5699).

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.


Item #d94jan97

Long-Term Implications of Climate Change and Air Pollution on Forest Ecosystems, R. Schlaepfer, $45. Intl. Union of Forestry Res. Orgs. (IUFRO), Seckendorff-Gudent-Weg 8, A-1130 Wien, Austria.


Item #d94jan98

Methods for Analyzing Extreme Events Under Climate Change (EPA/600/R-93/014), R.W. Katz, B.G. Brown, 41 pp., Jan. 1993. NTIS: PB93-146827; $17.

Summarizes work conducted by the Environmental and Societal Impacts Group of the National Center for Atmospheric Research for the U.S. EPA. Develops statistical models for extreme climatic events that can be applied to scenarios of future climate.


Item #d94jan99

Review of Models for Climate Change and Impacts on Hydrology, Coastal Currents and Fisheries in B.C. (CCD 92-02), G.A. McBean et al. (Univ. British Columbia), 15 pp. (summary), 1992, no charge, CCC.
