FROM VOLUME 7, NUMBER 9, SEPTEMBER 1994
REPORTS... SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMS: INTERNATIONAL GEOSPHERE-BIOSPHERE
Available from the IGBP Secretariat, Royal Swed. Acad. Sci.,
Box 50005, S-104 05 Stockholm, Swed.
in Action: Work Plan 1994-1998 (Rep. No. 28), 151 pp., 1994.
Provides researchers, funding agencies and others with a
current synthesis of what the IGBP is doing, why it is important,
the scientific products expected, and the meaning of individual
projects within the context of the whole program. It updates an
earlier document (Rep. No. 12, 1990) and includes specific
program details that were necessarily discussed only generally in
that report. It gives well-defined plans for the next two or
three years that can realistically be funded; plans given for a
five-year period are more speculative and assume an increased
level of support, the need for which is presented here.
Aspects of the Hydrological Cycle [BAHC]: The Operational Plan
(Rep. No. 27), BAHC Core Proj. Off. (Inst. Meteor., Freie Univ.
Berlin), 103 pp., 1993.
BAHC is an interdisciplinary project addressing how vegetation
interacts with the physical processes of the hydrologic cycle, a
crucial issue in GCMs. This report presents the BAHC research
plan, oriented around four research foci:
soil-vegetation-atmosphere transfer models; regional-scale
studies of land-surface properties and fluxes; the temporal and
spatial variability of biosphere-hydrosphere interactions; and
the "Weather Generator," a collection of methods for
downscaling climatic information from the coarse grid scale of
GCMs to the smaller scale of ecological and hydrologic models .
of Asian Symposium on Global Environmental Change
(CGER-1008-'93), Japan Natl. Comm. for IGBP et al., 140 pp.,
1993. Available from IGBP or Ctr. for Global Environ. Res., Japan
Environ. Agency, 16-2, Onogawa, Tsukuba, Ibaraki 305, Japan.
More than 170 scientists from the Asia-Pacific region
concerned with IGBP met in Tokyo (Dec. 1992) to further
cooperative research. This document contains reports of national
research programs from 10 countries, reports on eight IGBP core
projects, and a proposal for a regional research network.
Directory 1994, 156 pp., 1994.
Prepared to facilitate contacts among the growing numbers of
researchers and others interested in global change. Includes
members of the Scientific Committee for the IGBP, the IGBP
Secretariat, national committees, regional information centers,
and other committees and liaisons. Gives details of and contact
persons for core projects and framework activities.
