This book is the result of a research project entitled "Reference function for Global Air Pollution/C0 " initiated by RIVM. It deals with the description 2 of a computer simulation model of the greenhouse effect. This model, IMAGE, tries to capture the fundamentals of the complex problem of climate change in a simplified way. The model is a multidisciplinary product and is based on knowledge from disciplines as economics, atmospheric chemistry, marine and terrestrial biogeochemistry, ecology, climatology, and glaciology. This book might be of interest for anyone working in the broad field of climate change. Furthermore, it can be useful for model builders, simulation experts, mathematicians etc. A PC version of the model will become avail able free of charge. Requests can be sent to the author. Although being the only author of this book, I could never have written it without the help of many other people. First of all I would like to thank Koos Vrieze, originally a colleague at RIVM, later my professor. Without his inspiring attitude I would have never finished this thesis. I am also very grateful to RIVM for giving me the opportunity to write this thesis. lowe many thanks to Hans de Boois and Rob Swart for their support and assis tance during the research. Furthermore, I would like to thank my trainees who have substantially contributed to the contents of this book.

One of the greatest resources a school has is its staff. How teachers themselves, and their work, are defined are therefore matters of utmost importance. Major trends of increased control and 'new mangerialism' are occurring in most OECD countries, radically altering both the content and form of teacher education. This book outlines recent changes in teacher education and professional development and, by drawing on recent research findings, explores the positive and negative impacts on the nature of teaching and the shape of the profession.

Comprises a literature review of research and policy publications related to basic and primary schooling and quality education in the Tibetan Autonomous Region (TAR). These have been collected from selected official Chinese sources, Tibetan NGOs outside Tibet, international news agencies and Chinese, Tibetan, and international scholars with knowledge of social and educational issues in China and Tibet. The study is in two parts: Part I: a review of research and policy publications related to basic and primary education in Tibet/China, and Part II: an annex with a list of literature, websites and journals, and other statistical information.

From 1702 to 1713 England engaged in the final struggle to prevent Louis XIV of France from imposing his will on Europe, ending England's Protestant monarchy, and fundamentally altering her constitution. The ultimate victory of England and her allies was largely the work of two extraordinary men. While John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough, led the armies of the Grand Alliance on the Continent, Sidney Godolphin, Queen Anne's Lord High Treasurer from 1702 to 1710, raised the money required to finance the war. Despite his vital contributions to the war effort, historians have left Godolphin (1645-1712) lurking in Marlborough's shadow and have limited their studies to his political activities and to his implementation of the public credit system. Even then, their efforts have been incomplete: they have not explained how Godolphin was able to secure vitally needed revenue legislation from Parliament, and how he revamped the Treasury and its financial strategy. This book shows Godolphin to have been a force in his own right as well as one of the most important politicians in modern English history. This is evident from the conclusions that emerge from the first scholarly biography of Godolphin in one hundred years. First, he secured the huge amounts required to keep the armies of the Queen in the field through a network of political operatives in Parliament. Because of the immense confidence that the Bank of England had in his ability, the Lord Treasurer was then able to borrow the funds required to fuel the war. Second, these efforts, his relationship with Queen Anne, and his function as a conduit between the Cabinet Council, Parliament, and the Queen, made Godolphin a minister whose power exceeded that of any of his predecessors. He was, as his contemporaries recognized, the Queen's prime minister. Third, Godolphin undertook a massive and successful overhauling of the Treasury and the public credit system after years of chaos under William III. This book explains for the first time what changes Godolphin made in the credit system and their impact. Fourth, Godolphin was far more involved in diplomatic strategy than was previously realized. His control of the public purse strings gave him considerable leverage in pressing England's diplomatic agenda on her allies. Godolphin was not shy about using the subsidies that the Crown paid to its allies to harry them into line at critical times. His ability to raise the funds necessary for the war and his unique relationship with Marlborough also allowed the Lord Treasurer to become intimately involved in military strategy. When Marlborough returned each autumn from campaigning on the Continent, he and Godolphin huddled over how much money would be required for the next campaign and what strategy they would follow. This provided Godolphin with an opportunity to put forth his own views on strategy. In writing this biography, Professor Sundstrom has mined all English and Dutch sources relevant to the subject.
