FROM VOLUME 7, NUMBER 5, MAY 1994

REPORTS... EARTH SYSTEM SCIENCE: NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES

Obtain all but the last report from Natl. Academy Press, 2101 Constitution Ave. NW, Washington DC 20418 (800-624-6242 or 202-334-3313).


Item #d94may244

Low-Frequency Sound and Marine Mammals: Current Knowledge and Research Needs, Ocean Studies Board, 100 pp., Apr. 1994, $25.

Very little quantitative information exists with which to assess the impact of low-frequency noise on mammals, and the committee recommends changes in the regulatory process governing research to facilitate legitimate research on the topic. Includes a comparison of sound energy from oceanographic research and from supertankers.


Item #d94may245

The Ocean's Role in Global Change: Progress of Major Research Programs, Ocean Studies Board, 85 pp., 1994, $25.

Intended as an educational reference document for scientists, managers, Congress and the public. Reviews developments over the past several years in over a dozen programs such as TOGA, JGOFS, WOCE and Acoustic Thermography of Ocean Climate (ATOC). Makes recommendations to ensure that long-term measurements are extended beyond the work of any individual scientist or group of scientists, and stresses the need for cooperation among academia, government agencies, the private sector, and large-scale international and national global change programs.


Item #d94may246

Analytical Chemistry for Oceanic Carbon Cycle Studies, 96 pp., 1994, $26.

Identifies techniques and analytes oceanographers need to tackle research problems. The highest priority is in situ sensors that can operate continuously. Makes recommendations for research, development and funding.


Item #d94may247

Report of the Panel to Review EOSDIS Plans, 88 pp., Jan. 1994, no charge. Contact NAS Space Studies Board (202-334-3477).

The Earth Observation System (EOS) Data and Information System (EOSDIS) will handle the wealth of earth science data that will be generated by EOS starting in 1998. However, the program will not fulfill its goals or meet the needs of the scientists and policy analysts who are its intended users unless NASA makes major revisions in EOSDIS. The EOSDIS core system should be changed from a largely centralized design to one that is functionally and physically distributed.
