About 200 leading scientists and policymakers from 30 states and provinces met in Washington, D.C., in mid-November to consider Global Climate Change Linkages: Acid Rain, Air Quality and Stratospheric Ozone. Participants included atmospheric scientists, chemists, geologists, biologists, and engineers, as well as attorneys, government agency representatives, environmentalists and representatives of trade and professional associations.
The issues of acid rain, air quality and stratospheric ozone depletion are usually considered in isolation. The purpose of this meeting was to examine the potential linkages among them and the implications for decision makers. The meeting, the fifth annual conference sponsored by the Center for Environmental Information's Air Resources Information Clearinghouse, Rochester, N.Y., was cosponsored by 25 agencies and organizations in the U.S. and Canada.
