  • Id,Year,Cat,Endorse,Title,Abstract 3623,1991,2,4,A 20-YEAR RECORD OF ALPINE GRASSHOPPER ABUNDANCE| WITH INTERPRETATIONS FOR CLIMATE CHANGE,A 20-year capture-recapture study of alpine grasshoppers spanned three distinct sequences of abundance| featuring in turn dis-equilibrium| equilibrium and secondary cyclic equilibrium. This succession of population patterns in the most abundant species| Paprides nitidus| retained high stability between generations. It arose via superimposed life-cycle pathways and adaptive responses between grasshopper phenologies and their environmental constraints. The responses were identified by correlation coefficient analysis across extensive matrices (11 500+ correlations) of environmental records x time-lagged grasshopper estimators. An estimator of resident population members performed better than total population estimators. The observed retention of population stability despite shifts in the patterns of abundance implies some predictability| and potential effects of climate change (increased temperature| rainfall and raindays) are examined in a context of global warming. It is concluded that flora and fauna could eventually become depleted in alpine regions due to the displacement of grasshopper populations to vegetation-scree margins where physical weathering and vegetation instability are often pronounced. The highly flexible P. nitidus life cycle emphasises a high level of variation in egg phenology| whereby alternative overwintering pathways (quiescence| diapause| extended diapause) lead to variable life-cycle durations. The schematic cycle accommodates two quite different species| Sigaus australis and Brachaspis nivalis| and is throughout the cycle| and the 20-year census history suggests that a classic predator-prey response may arise between a native skink species (Reptilia) and grasshoppers. 3552,1991,4,4,A GEOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE ON CLIMATIC-CHANGE - COMPUTER-SIMULATION OF ANCIENT CLIMATES,The possibility of global warming resulting from the anthropogenic addition of carbon dioxide and other industrial gases into the atmosphere is a topic of much recent concern. Global climate models are used to make predictions for possible future climatic changes| but their ability to simulate climatic states other than the present day is not well constrained. The sedimentary record contains a wealth of information on past global climatic change. From this| we can get a good idea of what past climatic extremes were| and some idea of their underlying causes. If we attempt to simulate the climate of a past time period| we can evaluate the ability of a climate model to represent a climatic state substantially different from the present day. At present| models are not well utilized to reproduce a global climatology for a particular time period. Rather| the models are used for sensitivity experiments. One geologic factor is varied (e.g.| geography or CO2 level) while all others are held constant. In this way| the effect on the climate of changing that one factor can be tested| and insights into the mechanisms of global change are gained. The results are then compared with the geologic record. Two case studies are given as examples. 3543,1991,2,4,A SPATIAL MODEL FOR STUDYING THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATIC-CHANGE ON THE STRUCTURE OF LANDSCAPES SUBJECT TO LARGE DISTURBANCES,Global warming may have many consequences for natural ecosystems| including a change in disturbance regimes. No current model of landscapes subject to disturbance incorporates the effect of climatic change on disturbances on decade to century time scales| or addresses quantitative changes in landscape structure as disturbances occur. A new computer simulation model| DISPATCH| which makes use of a geographical information system for managing spatial data| has been developed for these purposes. The concept and structure of the DISPATCH model are described here| and a hypothetical example of its use is illustrated| but the model requires refinement before it can be used to predict the effects of global warming on specific landscapes. The model includes provisions for (1) temporally varying weather conditions and their effect on disturbance sizes| and (2) the effect of spatial variation in vegetation condition and physical setting on the probability of disturbance initiation and spread. The potential use of the model is illustrated with a hypothetical example in which the age structure of disturbance patches is monitored for a 250-year period as weather fluctuates. The model run suggests that landscape structure fluctuates even if a disturbance regime remains constant. 3540,1991,5,4,ABRUPT DEEP-SEA WARMING| PALAEOCEANOGRAPHIC CHANGES AND BENTHIC EXTINCTIONS AT THE END OF THE PALEOCENE,A remarkable oxygen and carbon isotope excursion occurred in Antarctic waters near the end of the Palaeocene (approximately 57.33 Myr ago)| indicating rapid global warming and oceanographic changes that caused one of the largest deep-sea benthic extinctions of the past 90 million years. In contrast| the oceanic plankton were largely unaffected| implying a decoupling of the deep and shallow ecosystems. The data suggest that for a few thousand years| ocean circulation underwent fundamental changes producing a transient state that| although brief| had long-term effects on environmental and biotic evolution. 3526,1991,5,4,ADVANCE OF EAST ANTARCTIC OUTLET GLACIERS DURING THE HYPSITHERMAL - IMPLICATIONS FOR THE VOLUME STATE OF THE ANTARCTIC ICE-SHEET UNDER GLOBAL WARMING,We present the first circum-East Antarctic chronology for the Holocene| based on 17 radiocarbon dates generated by the accelerator method. Marine sediments from around East Antarctica contain a consistent| high-resolution record of terrigenous (ice-proximal) and biogenic (open-marine) sedimentation during Holocene time. This record demonstrates that biogenic sedimentation beneath the open-marine environment on the continental shelf has been restricted to approximately the past 4 ka| whereas a period of terrigenous sedimentation related to grounding line advance of ice tongues and ice shelves took place between 7 and 4 ka. An earlier period of open-marine (biogenic sedimentation) conditions following the late Pleistocene glacial maximum is recognized from the Prydz Bay (Ocean Drilling Program) record between 10.7 and 7.3 ka. Clearly| the response of outlet systems along the periphery of the East Antarctic ice sheet during the mid-Holocene was expansion. This may have been a direct consequence of climate warming during an Antarctic "Hypsithermal." Temperature-accumulation relations for the Antarctic indicate that warming with cause a significant increase in accumulation rather than in ablation. Models that predict a positive mass balance (growth) of the Antarctic ice sheet under global warming are supported by the mid-Holocene data presented herein. 3617,1991,4,4,AN ANALYTICAL MODEL OF EARTH-OBSERVATIONAL REMOTE-SENSING SYSTEMS,The field of optical remote sensing for the analysis of Earth's resources has grown tremendously over the past 20 years. With increasing societal concern over such problems as ozone layer depletion and global warming| political support is likely to continue that growth. NASA has recently begun a program that will use state of the art sensor technology and processing algorithms to gain ever more detailed data about our Earth. To better understand the remote sensing process| research has begun on modeling the process as a system and investigating the interrelationships of system components. This paper presents a system model for the remote sensing process and some results that yield insight into its understanding. Key results include interrelationships between the atmosphere| sensor noise| sensor view angle| and scattered path radiance and their influence on classification accuracy of the ground cover type. Also included are results indicating the trade-offs in ground cell size and surface spatial correlation and their effect on classification accuracy. 3538,1991,4,3,AN ENERGY-BALANCE CLIMATE MODEL WITH HYDROLOGICAL CYCLE .2. STABILITY AND SENSITIVITY TO EXTERNAL FORCING,The stability of a thermodynamic climate model with three prognostic variables (two for temperature and one for humidity) is investigated. Two stable equilibrium points are found which| in agreement with earlier work| refer to the current (warm) climate and a cold climate. However| perturbations in global temperature must be extremely large (< -20-degrees-C) to drive the warm climate into the cold climate. The domains of attraction in phase space are dependent on temperature| but also on humidity. Starting from an ice covered state| the climatic trajectory approaches the present state| if humidity is above some threshold value initially| but evolves into the cold state| if it lies below. Numerical experiments show that the model is not only remarkably stable to internal perturbation but also relatively insensitive to changes in external parameters. The solar constant must be reduced by approximately 20% to obtain total ice cover; the atmospheric CO2- content must be doubled to obtain 1.5-degrees-C global warming. However| the surface temperature response of the model increases to 3.5-degrees-C if cloud temperature rather than cloud height is held fixed. In addition to the cloud height feedback| other positive feedbacks are ice albedo| water vapor and the oceanic heat flux. The great stabilizers of the model are IR damping and the atmospheric heat transport which is assumed to depend quadratically on the meridional temperature gradient. In addition| precipitation and evaporation effectively damp the surface temperature response of the all ocean model to increased atmospheric trace gases. 3593,1991,2,4,ANTARCTICA AND GLOBAL CHANGE,The Antarctic region of the globe is of special importance for a wide range of studies of global change. The IGBP research activities needing special focus for global change should be multidisciplinary| should involve both the geosphere and the biosphere| and should be of global as well as local interest. There are a number of important Antarctic research topics which fit these criteria. A decrease of Antarctic sea ice has a positive feedback on global warming. Reduction in the sea ice also impacts on deep ocean circulation and can give a positive feedback to the increase of atmospheric carbon dioxide by the reduction of a deep ocean sink. Changes in the mass balance of the Antarctic ice sheet impact on global sea level. A unique historic record of past climate and global environmental changes is being obtained from deep core drilling in the Antarctic ice sheet. Decreases of stratospheric ozone are most pronounced over the Antarctic in spring. The impact of increases in ultraviolet radiation on the biosphere can be studied in the Antarctic as a precursor to possible changes developing elsewhere around the globe. Changes in the atmosphere and ocean circulations resulting from the decrease in Antarctic sea ice cover can have important effects on ocean surface temperatures which impact on the climates of the continents. These topics are discussed briefly and a number of Antarctic research areas are highlighted which build on existing or planned international programmes and which can make critical contributions to multidisciplinary studies of global change. 2129,1991,2,3,ANTICIPATED PUBLIC-HEALTH CONSEQUENCES OF GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE,
