This book is comprised of the papers presented at a Symposium on Chemistry and the Enviroment held during the Chemistry International Conference in Brisbane, Australia from 1 to 2 September 1989. The Symposium sought to bring together eminent scientists to identify and discuss major environmental issues of consequence to the AsiaPacific region having a direct association with chemistry.



Atmospheric Modelling

The possible consequences of global warming have raised so much concern that United Nations has sponsored an effort to develop cooperative mitigation strategies for greenhouse phenomenon. The global temperatures and precipitation with increased levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases have become a subject matter of deep concern. While actual measurements enable the temperature profile existing at any particular time, modelling has become necessary to predict global warming effects.
