IMPACTS


Item #d95oct100

The Impact of Global Warming on Texas, G.R. North, J. Schmandt, J. Clarkson, Eds., 1995, $29.95 (Univ. Texas).

Explores possible effects and identifies policy options for avoiding or mitigating agricultural disaster.


Item #d95oct101

Climate Variability, Climate Change and Social Vulnerability in the Semi-Arid Tropics, J.C. Ribot, S. Panagides, A.R. Magalhaes, Eds., 270 pp., 1995, $59.95 (Cambridge).

Uses case studies from around the world to explore past experiences with climate variability and the likely effects of, and possible policy responses to, the types of climatic events that global warming might bring.


Item #d95oct102

As Climate Changes: International Impacts and Implications, K.M. Strzepek, J.B. Smith, Eds., 340 pp., 1995, $55.96 hbk/$23.96 pbk (Cambridge).

Uses common climate change scenarios to examine impacts on agriculture, water resources, coastal resources, forests and human health. Focuses on impacts in developing countries and uses Egypt as a case study.


Item #d95oct103

Assessing the Impacts of Climate Change on Natural Resource Systems, K.D. Frederick, N.J. Rosenberg, Eds., 224 pp., Dec. 1994, $115 (Kluwer).

Discusses the current state of the natural science and socioeconomic modeling of the impacts on forests, grasslands and water. Identifies what can be done currently with impact assessments, and the impediments to linking biophysical and socioeconomic models into integrated assessments for policy purposes. Recommends future research activities to remove these impediments. Reprinted from Clim. Change, 28(1-2), 1995.


Item #d95oct104

Mountain Environments in Changing Climates, M. Beniston, Ed., 445 pp., 1994, $125 (Routledge).

Reviewed by C.D. Whiteman in Bull. Amer. Meteor. Soc., pp. 1469-1470, Aug. 1995. Documents the technical contributions to an international conference (Davos, Switzerland; Oct. 1992) and forms a contribution to the IPCC assessment report on mountainous regions. Three major sections deal with fundamental processes, current observations and modeling techniques; impacts on vegetation; and socio-economics. Concludes that the degree of concern about climate change will vary depending on a number of complex interacting factors, and that climate change may have positive as well as negative impacts.
