[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: (Adapted from Abstract presented at ARS Carbon Storage Workshop,
Baltimore, MD, Jan 1999)


Problems: The combined impact of population increases, industrial
expansion, and deforestation has resulted in increased atmospheric CO2
concentration, which is projected to double in the next century. The
implications of these changes, while highly debated, are for global
warming and local climate shifts. ... View entire text
