A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999



Item #d88jul1

Welcome to the first issue of the Global Climate Change Digest. The format of this publication is similar to that developed for the Acid Precipitation Digest, now in its sixth year of publication. Our success in providing current information from around the globe depends in part on our readers. An international editorial board is being established with the sole responsibility of helping to provide relevant material for the Digest, but we welcome appropriate contributions from others as well. We will consider timely calendar items, reports, books and proceedings, journal publications and potential news material. A citation, good summary, and ordering information is sufficient for most documents but a complete copy is preferable. Send submissions to Dr. R.W. Pratt, R.D. 1 - Box 185, Valley Falls NY 12185 (Tel. 518-753-7838). Material may also be sent by telefax to the Rochester, New York, office of the Center for Environmental Information (716-325-5131; any group 2 or 3 machine), or to the Amsterdam office of Elsevier (011-31-020-5862-726; Attn.: J. Claypool).

Because this publication is new but the topic is not, the first several issues will include some material that is less current than we will normally include, particularly major documents, or those not likely to be familiar to our readers. Retrospective news items (such as the first two in this issue) will provide updates on selected topics, and retrospective sections will appear in the other departments soon.

The exchange of information has made our world seem smaller, and has enabled humans to do things that may be changing our physical world in fundamental ways. But it is essential to continue the exchange as we enter whatever future awaits us. We hope this publication helps.
