Global Climate Change Digest
A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999
FROM VOLUME 8, NUMBER 3, MARCH 1995
OF GENERAL INTEREST: CO2 PROJECTIONS
items from Global Biogeochem. Cycles, 9(1), Mar.
"Limiting Future Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide," J.L.
Sarmiento (Atmos. & Ocean Sci. Prog., Princeton Univ., POB
CN710, Princeton NJ 08544), C. Le Quéré, S.W. Pacala, 121-137.
Describes a contribution to the IPPC's model comparison study
that estimates allowable emissions for stabilizing future
atmospheric CO2 concentrations at levels ranging from
350 ppm to 750 ppm. Concludes that all stabilization scenarios
require a substantial future reduction in emissions.
"Uncertainties in Future CO2
Projections," S.G. Craig (Dept. Meteor., Stockholm Univ.,
S-106 91 Stockholm, Swed.), J.J. Holmén, 139-152. Incorporates
CO2 fertilization of the terrestrial biosphere and
enhanced regrowth of previously felled temperate forests into a
box diffusion model of the ocean-atmosphere system coupled to a
five-box terrestrial biosphere. The CO2 record can
accommodate a carbon budget balanced by CO2
fertilization, but balancing the carbon budget with forest
regrowth is more difficult.
Comment on "'The Lifetime of Excess Atmospheric Carbon
Dioxide,' by B. Moore III and B.H. Braswell," S.R. Gaffin
(Environ. Defense Fund, New York, N.Y.), B.C. O'Neill, M.
Oppenheimer, 167-169. An extensive comment concerning the
modeling of future CO2 levels and the calculation of
global warming potentials.
