Case study on potential agricultural responses to climate change in a California landscape

Agriculture in the Central Valley of California, one of the USA’s main sources of fruits, nuts, and vegetables, is highly vulnerable to climate change impacts in the next 50 years. This

The environmental effects of global changes on northeast central Europe in the case of non-modified agricultural management

Climate impact scenarios for agriculture usually consider yield development, landscape water balance, nutrient dynamics or the endangerment of habitats separately. Scenario results are further

Current Issues in Global Warming and Mitigation Efforts: Focus on California

Global warming is almost certainly the most important problem addressed by the atmospheric community today and has recently become one of the hottest on the political agenda. Because it is such a

Climate change impacts on dryland cropping systems in the Central Great Plains, USA

Agricultural systems models are essential tools to assess potential climate change (CC) impacts on crop production and help guide policy decisions. In this study, impacts of projected CC on dryland

THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON NITROGEN AND SULPHUR LOAD IN PERCOLATION WATER FROM AGRICULTURE LANDSCAPE

Global and climate changes influence the basic conditions for agriculture. Therefore there is not only a demand for a strict climate protection but also for an adaptation of agriculture to changing

The challenges and opportunities for wheat production under future climate in Northern Ethiopia

SUMMARY Wheat is an important crop in the highlands of Northern Ethiopia and climate change is expected to be a major threat to wheat productivity. However, the potential impacts of climate change

Global warming likely reduces crop yield and water availability of the dryland cropping systems in the U.S. Central Great Plains

TLDR
The model was projected to decrease crop yields for the combined climate change scenarios of CO2, temperature, and precipitation in the dryland cropping rotations, which should be attributable to the shortening of crop maturity duration and concurrent decreases in soil water and evapotranspiration.

Climate change and the global harvest

This book summarizes state-of-the-art knowledge on the potential impacts of climate change on agriculture. The book begins by introducing the nonspecialist to the causes of climate change, and

TLDR
It is found that annual temperature increases nearly double from the lower B1 to the higher A1fi emissions scenario before 2100, and three of four simulations also show greater increases in summer temperatures as compared with winter.

Changes in agro-meteorological indicators in the contiguous United States: 1951–2000

SummaryMosaic changes in regional and local surface air temperatures and precipitation have occurred along with the increase of the average global surface air temperature in the 20th century,

Potential Implications of PCM Climate Change Scenarios for Sacramento–San Joaquin River Basin Hydrology and Water Resources

The potential effects of climate change on the hydrology and water resources of the Sacramento–San Joaquin River Basin were evaluated using ensemble climate simulations generated by the U.S.

Ozone and Crop Yield

TLDR
Ozone concentrations in most agricultural areas of the United States are now estimated at two to three times higher than they would be without human influence, presenting the agricultural community with a class of diseases that are extremely difficult to recognize and that can affect all crops.

Asymmetric warming over coastal California and its impact on the premium wine industry

Climatic changes over coastal California from 1951 to 1997 may have benefited the pre- mium wine industry, as seen in higher quality wines and larger grape yields. Observed temperature warming trends

Design and application of a free-air carbon dioxide enrichment facility

Detection of a direct carbon dioxide effect in continental river runoff records

TLDR
A mechanistic land-surface model and optimal fingerprinting statistical techniques are used to attribute observational runoff changes into contributions due to climate change and variability, and find that the trends are consistent with a suppression of plant transpiration due to CO2-induced stomatal closure.

Climate responses to a doubling of atmospheric carbon dioxide for a climatically vulnerable region

Global modeling studies of future climate change predict large scale climatic responses to increased atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). While there have been several regional climate modeling studies
