This list of acronyms and abbreviations was compiled to provide the user with a ready reference for deciphering the linguistic initialisms and abridgements used in documentation about the study of global change. The terms included in the first edition were selected from a wide variety of sources: technical reports, policy documents, global change program announcements, newsletters, and other periodicals. The disciplinary interests covered by this document include agriculture, atmospheric science, ecology, environmental science, oceanography, policy science, and other fields. In addition to its availability in hard copy, the list of acronyms and abbreviations is available on DOS-formatted diskettes and through CDIAC's anonymous FTP area on the Internet.
