As World Warms, Vegetation Changes May Influence Extreme Weather
Abstract: This is believed to be the first study to indicate that as vegetation responds to climate change, those changes in ground cover may affect where and how often extreme weather events occur.

Aviation and the Global Atmosphere
Abstract: Discusses atmospheric science relating to aviation, and socio-economic issues associated with mitigation options for both subsonic and supersonic fleets. Covers potential effects of past and future aviation on both stratospheric ozone depletion and global climate change.

Can Ocean Carbon Uptake Keep Pace with Industrial Emissions?
Abstract: The first observations based on the estimate of the history of anthropogenic carbon uptake by the ocean suggests that the oceans are struggling to keep up with rising emissions.
