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.]

Positive Changes: How Smoking Affects Livestock and What can be Done — Last modified September 02, 2015 13:43

Man-made nitrogen could cause damage worth $441 billion — Last modified June 03, 2015 11:13
When reactive nitrogen from human activities leaks into the environment, it causes damage – many studies document the effect on human health, on ecology and on the environment. There are inevitably costs associated with mitigating this damage or putting it right, for example losses incurred by a fishing industry affected by eutrophication of water, or costs involved in the number of hospital visits due to respiratory illnesses. In the first study of its kind, researchers in the US have quantified these costs of anthropogenic nitrogen on a national scale by combining nitrogen-loading data with economic data for the US.

Loss of rainfall satellites will hamper flood management — Last modified May 29, 2015 09:58
Currently, there are 10 satellites dedicated to monitoring rainfall, but soon this number is likely to fall: four satellites have already passed their design life and others will follow soon. As yet, there are no plans for replacement. The resulting loss of data will have serious consequences for flood management, according to a new study.
World food system has grown more vulnerable — Last modified May 29, 2015 09:56
Walk along the aisle of an average supermarket and it soon becomes evident how much of our food is imported: Canadian flour, rice from Pakistan, olive oil from Greece, oranges from Spain, green beans from Kenya, and the list goes on. In Britain, 40% of the food consumed is imported. In theory, this diverse food supply chain should make the nation less vulnerable – if the banana harvest fails in the West Indies then inhabitants can still rely on bananas coming from Ecuador, Columbia and Costa Rica. But sometimes this complex food network makes people more vulnerable, as new research shows.
Scientists discover why flowers bloom earlier in a warming climate — Last modified May 29, 2015 09:53
