View Resource Global Warming: Undoubtedly Real

A major new report issued by the National Research Council of the National Academies on January 12 concludes that global warming is "'undoubtedly real,' and that surface temperatures in the past two decades have risen at a rate substantially greater than average for the past 100 years." In particular, the report examines the apparent conflict between surface temperature and upper-air temperature....

View Resource Climate Change and Politics: The US Abandons Kyoto

Last week, the Bush administration announced that it would not sign the Kyoto Protocol, provoking harsh criticism around the world and in the US. Immediately following the Bush announcement, the Senate voted against Bush's wish to cut funding for climate change programs. The Kyoto Protocol, a 1997 addition to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, is an international agreement...

View Resource Particle Analysis by Laser Mass Spectrometry

PALMS (Particle Analysis by Laser Mass Spectrometry), a laser ion mass spectrometer run by the National Oceanic and Atmospherics Association's (NOAA's) Meteorological Chemistry Group, makes in-situ measurements of the chemical composition of individual aerosol particles. PALMS has a lab version and a flight version, which is carried on the nose of an aircraft. The PALMS Website gives spectral data...

View Resource Greenhouse Gases and the Kyoto Protocol

The United Nations Environment Programme UNEP/ GRID Arendal Website (described in the June 24, 1998 Scout Report for Science & Engineering) summarizes greenhouse gas emissions for 1998 and provides projections for 2010. The maps and statistics presented here are based on data collected by the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) for the international summit in The Hague, November...

View Resource Contributions to Global Warming Map

This Web site comes from the World Resources Institute, "an environmental think tank that goes beyond research to find practical ways to protect the earth and improve people's lives." The site contains a map of the relative contribution of carbon dioxide emissions of different geographic areas, and is offered as part of WRI's Global Topics: Climate Change and Energy. The map, which depicts...

View Resource Critical UN Conference on Greenhouse Gases Begins

Yesterday at the Hague, delegates from over 160 nations began meeting to try to hammer out details of the 1997 Kyoto agreement which mandated that nations reduce their greenhouse gas emissions to pre-1990 levels by the year 2012. This sixth session of the UN's Framework Convention on Climate Change will have to overcome significant obstacles if delegates are to emerge with an agreement within the...

View Resource Atmospheric Chemistry Spectroscopy and Radiation

Provided by Dr. Stephen Wilson, this site illustrates the research using FTIR (Fourier Transform InfrarRed) technology by the Atmospheric Chemistry Research Group at the University of Wollongong. Chemists and students can learn how the group approaches issues of Greenhouse Gas Emissions by attempting to improve estimations of trace element exchange using high precision FTIR-based methods and...
