Abstract

The Aerial Fertilization Effect of C0 and Its Implications Laboratory' Phoe,™ Ai 2 0 for Global Carbon Cycling and Maximum Greenhouse Warming How much will the world warm as a result of increased is also known about the second question. Specifically, atmospheric C0 levels due to mankind's activities? a 300 to 600 ppm doubling of the atmospheric C0 2 2 The answer to this question, which is a major environ- concentration increases the growth rates of most non- mental concern of our day, depends upon the answers woody plants by about 33% (Kimball 1983a,b). But to two other questions: 1) How sensitive is earth's since forests account for the bulk of global photosyn- climate system to increases in atmospheric C0 ? 2) thesis, the second question cannot be fully answered How high will the air's C0 content eventually rise? without knowing how trees respond to atmospheric The first of these questions has been the cause of C0 enrichment. much debate, both sides of which have been effec- There are two independent methods by which this tively summarized by Lindzen (1990) and Schneider information may be obtained.
