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 Reports to the Nation on Our Changing Planet: Our Changing Climate

Our Changing Climate is part of a series of reports entitled Reports to the Nation On Our Changing Planet. This new publication was sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and published by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research. Our Changing Climate discusses the changing climate of the earth and how humans impact that change. Report topics include reasons...
View Resource Climate and Radiation

The Climate and Radiation Branch of the NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center includes discussions on aerosols, clouds and the hydrological cycle, rainfall, and remote sensing. As you dig deeper into individual pages, you can find more detailed information on such things as fractals, GOES and MODIS instruments, and so on. There's a page to search for publications, and many abstracts are...
View Resource About El Nino

About El Nino is a collection of journal articles and books that have been written about El Nino/Southern Oscillation and compiled by the Bureau of Meteorology, Australia. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminstration (NOAA), El Nino is "a disruption of the ocean-atmosphere system in the tropical Pacific having important consequences for weather around the globe." It is caused by...
View Resource El Nino Theme Page: Accessing Distributed Information Related to El Nino

The El Nino Theme Page is a comprehensive site from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) covering the basics of El Nino, current updates, and related data. A link to Spanish language sites is also provided. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminstration (NOAA), El Nino is "a disruption of the ocean-atmosphere system in the tropical Pacific having important...
View Resource A Comprehensive Bibliography on the El Nino Phenomena

The Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies (COAPS) Library at Florida State University (discussed in the October 1, 1997 issue of the Scout Report for Science & Engineering) has created this bibliography on El Nino and its effects. Users can browse publications from COAPS or outside sources via author's last name. A number of COAPS publications are available online.
View Resource The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

The IPCC was established in 1988 by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to assess the available scientific, technical, and socio-economic information in the field of climate change. The IPCC site's offerings include special reports, technical papers, press releases, and information on its three Working Groups. Group III is investigating...
View Resource Western Fuels Association

Western Fuels, "an especially aggressive industry player," offers alternative interpretations of the threat of global warming and warn against unnecessary regulations on US industry.

Any agreement,...
View Resource Earth Observatory (EO)

In keeping with the trend towards global-scale monitoring, NASA has launched this Website to highlight NASA research on "regional and global changes on the planet." The site is comprised of five main sections: Modeling Earth's Land Biosphere, Reckoning With Winds (tropical cyclones), Climate Modeling, El Nino, and Benjamin Franklin (earth science). Each section contains an illustrated summary of...
View Resource Developing Countries & Global Climate Change: Electric Power Options in Korea

The Pew Center on Global Climate Change has recently placed online the October 1999 report entitled "Developing Countries & Global Climate Change: Electric Power Options in Korea." Written by Jin-Gyu Oh and others, the report (.pdf format) discusses the implications of Korea's energy choices -- coal, gas, nuclear, or renewable energy -- and how the chosen "mix of policy, growth, and technology...
