New information for agrometeorologists

Last modified September 26, 2008 09:27

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.]

Understanding changes in precipitation — Last modified July 31, 2014 13:57
As the world warms up, we can expect an increase in global precipitation. But many climate models don’t show such an increase by the end of the 20th century. To understand this conflict, researchers from the Met Office, UK, have gone back to basics.
A win-win-win solution for biofuel, climate, and biodiversity — Last modified July 22, 2014 13:37
Fossil fuel emissions release billions of tons of carbon into the atmosphere each year, which is changing the climate and threatening the sustainability of life on planet Earth. In Brazil, the demand for alternative energy sources has led to an increase in biofuel crops.
Report finds successful efforts to reduce deforestation — Last modified June 26, 2014 08:27
Efforts reduce climate change emissions without obstructing commodities boom.
Trees could boost crop yield in Africa — Last modified June 25, 2014 09:25
In sub-Saharan Africa, using the nitrogen-fixing tree Sesbania sesban to improve soil nutrient levels could help boost maize yields, according to researchers from Switzerland, Germany, China and the US. Rotating crops with the tree could also provide some proofing against climate change until temperatures climb higher towards the end of the century.
Available the new National crop monitoring and forecasting system of Morocco — Last modified June 11, 2014 09:20
This system has been developed in collaboration with the Joint Research Centre of the European Union and several European institution in the framework of E-AGRI project funded by EU.
Clouds: bright and with a fresh pine scent — Last modified May 27, 2014 09:15
A new study has shed light on the first step of cloud formation, revealing that organic oxides – such as the molecule responsible for giving pine forests their smell – are a vital ingredient.
Study: climate change, fires melted Greenland ice surface — Last modified May 27, 2014 09:11
A Dartmouth-led study finds that rising temperatures and ash from Northern Hemisphere forest fires combined to cause large-scale surface melting of the Greenland ice sheet in 1889 and 2012. This contradicts conventional thinking that the melting was driven by warming alone.
Air pollution is pushing wind speed into a regulator of surface solar irradiance in China — Last modified May 27, 2014 09:03
Y W Wang et al 2014 Environ. Res. Lett. 9 054004 doi:10.1088/1748-9326/9/5/054004. Air pollution is pushing wind speed into a regulator of surface solar irradiance in China.
From the Editors SiS (Science in Society) - Global Status of GMO & Non-GMO Crops — Last modified May 19, 2014 08:04
Material collected and slightly edited for INSAM by Kees Stigter.
More cropland used for exports — Last modified May 16, 2014 07:58
Over the last 24 years, the amount of land worldwide used to grow crops for export has increased rapidly, according to researchers in Austria. Meanwhile, the extent of land assigned to crops for direct domestic use has remained virtually unchanged.
