[Coral-List] PDF requests

     All older issues of the Bulletin of Marine Science are available free, 
open-access, on the Bulletin website, just do a search on the journal name, then 
look on the website for the issue you need, and download the article.  Some 
other journals do this as well, like Marine Ecology Progress Series, Biological 
Bulletin (I think I remember), but others don't.
      A good way to find some things is to go to Google Scholar, and type in the 
name of the article you want.  Often they pop up with a free pdf available from 
some website, that's indicated off to the right of the article.
      The National Park websites might have pdfs of reports.  The website for 
the National Park of American Samoa has a link to a website that has almost all 
of the articles on American Samoa reefs, wildlife, geology, etc available free 
as pdfs.
      If those things don't work, try to send an email to the author asking for 
a pdf.  Most authors want to publicize their work, and are happy to send a pdf 
if they have one.  To get the email address of an author, you can use your copy 
of the directory to the members of the International Society for Reef Studies, 
which you get when you join and get a subscription to Coral Reefs for a mere 
US$90 (I think it is), one of the cheapest journals out there, a benefit of 
society membership, along with a discount on ICRS registration (join if you 
haven't already!!  Just go to their website, or a copy of the journal).  Also, 
NOAA's coral reef program website has a redirect to a site that lists contacts 
for many coral reef researchers.  Some journal websites that give only abstracts 
might also give author contact.

     Cheers,   Doug

Faster ice melt, higher sea levels

Ice loss on Greenland and Antarctica is accelerating at three times the rate of 
mountain ice loss. If it continues, this melting will dominate sea-level rise 
this century.

Eric Rignot at the University of California, Irvine, and his colleagues compared 
calculations based on 18 years' worth of data on climate and ice discharge with 
8 years' worth of data from the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment, which 
uses satellite measurements to assess ice mass. The authors estimate that the 
rate of loss is increasing by around 36.3 gigatonnes of ice a year, with a 
cumulative loss of 475 gigatonnes in 2006.
