New Scientist;7/6/91, Vol. 131 Issue 1776, p25
Reports on the decrease in Arctic sea ice between 1978 and 1987. Observation of the decrease through instruments on board the satellite Nimbus 7; Lack of indication of any change in the area of sea ice around Antarctica; Lack of evidence of greenhouse warming, according to researchers from the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt Maryland; Results from a computer simulation of greenhouse warming.
