Overview of the Collection

Repository:    American Association for the Advancement of Science Archives, 1200 New York Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20005, Email AAAS Archives
Creator:    AAAS Climate Program
Title:    AAAS Climate Program Records
Dates:    1975-1989
Extent:    36.25 linear feet (29 boxes)
Abstract:    In May 1978, AAAS convened a working group on climate that recommended that the association focus on the research and social implications of climate change as part of its commitment to international science. AAAS established a Climate Program, headed by David Burns, and a Committee on Climate, chaired by noted ocean geologist Roger Revelle, to advise the program. The Climate Program sponsored conferences on possible effects of climate change on the environment broadly, on food security, on water resources, and the specific effects of rising carbon dioxide on plants. The program worked with the U.S. Department of Energy to peer review a compendium of state-of-the-art research on climate to aid in outlining a national research agenda. The program ended in 1989 while AAAS continued its interest in international environmental problems through a population, resources, and sustainability program.
Language:    The records are in English.

Scope and Contents

Records, arranged in five series, include conference and workshop materials, commissioned and contributed papers, draft manuscripts, committee meeting minutes, and correspondence, as well as background articles, reports, and newspaper clippings on climate change topics.

Series I includes materials and papers from the 1979 AAAS/DOE Workshop on Environmental/Societal Consequences of C02-Induced Climate Change; two volumes and commissioned papers based on the 1979 Workshop; a 1982 Workshop on Rising Atmospheric C02 Plant Productivity; a project with the Department of Energy to develop a report on state-of-the-art research activities on climate change; and proposals and budgets for phases and projects undertaken by the AAAS Climate Program.

Series II includes information on the Climate and Water Panel chaired by Paul Waggoner. It also includes materials and papers from the 1987 International Symposium on Climate Variability and Food Security, held in New Delhi, India, as well as background materials on the effects of climate changes on water and food. This series also includes biographical information and files on David Burns, AAAS Staff Officer in charge of the Climate Project, and on Roger Revelle, chair of the Committee on Climate.

Series III includes records of the AAAS Committee on Climate, such as meeting minutes, correspondence, and symposium information. There are a few records on other AAAS committees or projects that intersected with the Climate Program. This series also contains chronological files.

Series IV contains alphabetical records of other organizations, programs, or workshops pertaining to climate change issues. Included are such organizations as the Aspen Institute, the International Council of Scientific Unions, the National Academy of Sciences, and the World Meteorological Organization. This series also includes science and policy material on climate change, such as examples of legislation, hearings, and testimony, as well as general background information.

Series V is background material gathered by Climate Program staff. News clippings, articles, and papers on topics such as acid rain, carbon dioxide, climatic modeling, the greenhouse effect, oceans, population, and weather.


Records are arranged in five series. Series I: Climate Variability and C02; Series II: Climate, Water and Food; Series III: AAAS Committee on Climate; Series IV: Organizations; Series V: Miscellaneous Background Material.
