INSAM News Collection
All the INSAM news
Grouped under “NEWS”, there first is "”, where you will find hot items of interest that have recently come up. Subsequently there is a section "News and Highlights" for which you can submit information on agrometeorological issues, happenings and other news in agrometeorology. [Send items you might have to the Web Editor.] Under "Meetings, Congresses, Conferences & Training" information is provided on such forthcoming events. This may include courses that are given annually and they should be announced annually. [Send items for inclusion to the Web Editor well in advance, as early as possible.] The "Call for papers" speaks for itself [Idem.] Under “Vacancies” you will find information on employment possibilities for agrometeorologists. [Again, send items for inclusion to the Web Editor well in advance, as early as possible.]

- Please find attached an opportunity to work in the “Climate Information for International Development” team. This is based in Exeter and is being advertised at Scientist/Senior Scientist level (depending on experience).
- Vacancy: Postdoctoral Research Scientist Position at the University of Colorado-Boulder (USA) — Last modified July 28, 2015 12:59
- We seek a Postdoctoral Research Scientist to investigate the hydrologic impacts of recent changes in land-cover and climate over key regions of the United States. Specifically, the goals of this research are to (1) identify the drivers of increased flood severity within the Missouri River Basin over the last 4 decades using a hydrologic modeling framework, and (2) assess the impacts of land-cover change on evapotranspiration in the Great Plains region to provide insights on the direction of future changes under projected climate scenarios.

- New in Journal Science: A Guidebook for Ecosystem Services — Last modified May 22, 2015 08:19
- A team of investors, development organizations, conservationists, economists, and ecologists have published in the journal Science six natural science principles to ensure success of Payments for Ecosystem Services, mechanisms that have helped preserve carbon stocks stored in Madagascar's rainforests, maintain wildlife populations important for tourism in Tanzania, and protect watersheds in France by working with local farmers.
- Modern irrigation systems boost carbon emissions — Last modified May 22, 2015 08:17
- As water scarcity increases in the Mediterranean, there is pressure on the agriculture industry to reduce water losses, improve efficiency and boost water productivity. In recent years, government-subsidized pressurized irrigation systems have replaced traditional low-efficiency surface irrigation schemes in many countries, in an attempt to minimize water losses and improve efficiency.
- Conservation buffers please the eye, protect the landscape — Last modified May 18, 2015 09:20
- Researchers know that adding natural buffers to the farm landscape can stop soil from vanishing. Now a scientist at Washington State University has found that more buffers are better, both for pleasing the eye and slowing erosion.
