PROFESSIONAL PUBLICATIONS... TEMPERATURE TRENDS
Variations in the Middle and Upper Stratosphere: 1979-1992,"
J.D. Lambeth (Sci. Applic. Intl. Corp., 1 Enterprise Pkwy., S.
250, Hampton VA 23666), L.B. Callis, J. Geophys. Res., 99(D10),
20,701-20,712, Oct. 20, 1994.
The observed temperature variations, which appear to be of
natural origin, must be considered when seeking temperature
trends caused by the increase of greenhouse gases that affect the
radiative balance of the Earth-atmosphere system or stratospheric
'Greenhouse Effect,'" J.-P. Blanchet (Dépt. Phys., Univ.
Québec, POB 8888, Montréal PQ H3C 3P8, Can.), Nature, 371(6496),
383, Sep. 29, 1994.
Surface cooling observed in the Arctic over the past few
decades, in apparent contradiction to predicted global warming,
may result from increased long-range transport of acidic haze.
"Quantifying Global Warming from the Retreat of
Glaciers," S. Hastenrath (Dept. Atmos. & Oceanic Sci.,
Univ. Wisconsin, Madison WI 53706), Science, 265(5180),
1790-1791, Sep. 23, 1994.
of Climatic Transition in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) in Global Warming
Perspectives," S. Qureshi (Dept. Geog., Aligarh Muslim
Univ., Aligarh UP 20 2002, India), N. Khan, GeoJournal, 33(4),
423-432, Aug. 1994.
Data for 26 years showed a mutual trend in all temperature
parameters measured, and agreement with global warming model
projections based on CO2 concentration changes in the atmosphere.
Warming in the Central Antarctic Peninsula Area," P. Stark
(Brit. Antarctic Surv., High Cross, Madingley Rd., Cambridge CB3
0ET, UK), Weather, 49(6), 215-220, June 1994.
A 44-year temperature record at Faraday shows a warming trend
of about 2.7·C over the period. Climate models suggest that the
marginal sea-ice zone is a region that may exhibit a large
response to global warming. (See related item in New Scientist,
p. 11, June 25.)
