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.]

Climate-smart agriculture requires three-pronged global research agenda — Last modified September 29, 2014 13:43
Faced with climate change and diminishing opportunities to expand productive agricultural acreage, the world needs to invest in a global research agenda addressing farm and food systems, landscape and regional issues and institutional and policy matters if it is to meet the growing worldwide demand for food, fiber and fuel, suggests an international team of researchers.
New study charts the global invasion of crop pests — Last modified September 29, 2014 10:32
Many of the world's most important crop-producing countries will be fully saturated with pests by the middle of the century if current trends continue, according to a new study led by the University of Exeter.
Cause of global warming hiatus found deep in the Atlantic Ocean — Last modified September 29, 2014 10:17
Following rapid warming in the late 20th century, this century has so far seen surprisingly little increase in the average temperature at the Earth's surface. At first this was a blip, then a trend, then a puzzle for the climate science community.
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.
