Under "New information for agrometeorologists" we mention relevant new web sites (before they become only routine links), data bases, software, CDs, trends, issues and other information in agrometeorology [Send items for inclusion to the Web Editor.]

Increased carbon dioxide has altered photosynthesis of plants over the 20th century — Last modified January 15, 2016 15:22
Researchers at Umeå University and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences have discovered that increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere have shifted photosynthetic metabolism in plants over the 20th century.

Lazy microbes are key for soil carbon and nitrogen sequestration — Last modified January 11, 2016 08:34
Social interactions in microbial communities could explain how much carbon and nitrogen gets stored in soils—providing new insight for climate change research.
Study of cloud cover in tropical Pacific reveals future climate changes — Last modified December 21, 2015 14:31
A new analysis using changes in cloud cover over the tropical Indo-Pacific Ocean showed that a weakening of a major atmospheric circulation system over the last century is due, in part, to increased greenhouse gas emissions. The findings from researchers at the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science provide new evidence that climate change in the tropical Pacific will result in changes in rainfall patterns in the region and amplify warming near the equator in the future.

Study shows new forests cannot take in as much carbon as predicted — Last modified December 14, 2015 08:19
As carbon emissions continue to rise, scientists project forests will grow faster and larger, due to an increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide, which fuels photosynthesis. But a new study by researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom finds that these projections are overestimated.
Extreme weather becoming more common, study says — Last modified December 02, 2015 09:16
Extreme weather like the drought currently scorching the western US and the devastating floods in Pakistan in 2010 is becoming much more common, according to new scientific research. From the Guardian.
Future crop production threatened by extreme heat — Last modified December 02, 2015 09:14
Uncertainties in the occurrence of heat stress under field conditions, plant responses to heat, and appropriate adaptation measures still need further investigation, say Stefan Siebert and Frank Ewert.
‘Dzud’ years for Mongolian herders linked to climate — Last modified December 02, 2015 09:12
In Mongolia, pastoral nomadic herding is still a cornerstone of the culture. But it is a tough life and in recent years herders have been hit with more "dzud" – disastrous years where huge numbers of livestock die. In some cases, herders have been left without a single animal, forcing them to migrate to urban areas. Many of the dzud events are thought to be linked to climate, but until now the details of this connection were not clear. A new study has revealed that exceptionally cold winters and dry summers are key causes of dzud years.
