increase drops: Global measurements reveal a sharp drop in
the rate of increase of atmospheric methane in 1992 that
researchers tentatively attribute to decreased emissions in the
former Soviet Union. (See Dlugokencky paper, Prof. Pubs./Gen.
Int. Sci.) A brief article in New Scientist (p. 10, Oct.
9) discusses the work, which was presented at a meeting in
relationships: Astronomers Sallie Baliunas and Robert Jastrow
are publishing findings, based on surveys of dozens of stars,
that could help explain a correlation reported in 1991 between
the length of the solar cycle and the observed record of global
temperature. See Science, pp. 1372-1373, Nov. 26.
Climate Research Network: Letters of intent to participate in
developing this network, intended for research on a variety of
interdisciplinary Earth science topics, are being solicited.

Whole World Had a Case of Ice Age Shivers," R.A. Kerr, Science,
pp. 1972-1973, Dec. 24. Several studies presented at the fall
meeting of the American Geophysical Union suggest that the
temperature fluctuations and iceberg surges that have
characterized the last ice age were apparently felt all over the
globe. Paleoclimatologists are considering changes in the deep
ocean circulation as well as changes in the Earth's orbit as
Backs Theory of Sudden Climate Change," J. Hecht, New
Scientist, p. 14, Dec. 18. Geologic evidence indicates that
an abrupt 15-meter drop in sea level at the end of the last
interglacial period might have occurred in less than a century.
Climate Change Can Unravel a Forest," R. Monastersky, Science
News, p. 359, Nov. 27. Modeling of the effect of the Little
Ice Age on Canadian forests shows that a relatively minor,
prolonged climate change can dramatically alter forests. See
