Agrometeorological adaptation strategies to increasing climate variability and climate change

  title={Agrometeorological adaptation strategies to increasing climate variability and climate change},
  author={M. J. Salingera and C. J. Stigterb and H. P. Dasc},
This paper starts with summarizing the indications for climate change as they are reviewed in the most recent WMO global climate system reviews. There are indications in the paper for increasing climate variability in certain areas. Some of the principal causes of increasing climate variability and climate change (ICV & CC) are a mixture of external and internal factors to the climate system. Of changes over the past century, increases in greenhouse gases have probably been the most important…

Agriculture's influence on climate during the Holocene
Impact of the Global Climate Change on Land Degradation in Egypt
Indications of serious changes in the world's climate have been evident over the past few decades. Recently, studies have shown how grave the problem is, as well as the magnitude of its negative
Tropical rainforest canopies and climate change
There is less certainty about the impact of climate change on tropical rainforests than on temperate forests because of the comparative lack of background data and because few large scale experiments
AM Evaluating Climate Suitability for Agriculture in Switzerland
With climate change increased water shortage and extreme weather events during the cropping season may cause more frequent crop loss, yield instability, and make cultivated areas less suitable for
Understanding the coupled natural and human systems in Dryland East Asia
Stressors including regional climate change, economic development effects upon land use and an increasing demand for food production have resulted in significant impacts on the dryland ecosystems in
Analysis of Rainfall and Temperature Changes and Variability over Glen Farm, South Africa
In the agricultural domain, decision-making is greatly guided by agricultural meteorology, which is the science that applies knowledge of weather and climate to qualitative and quantitative

Changes in rice disasters across China in recent decades and the meteorological and agronomic causes
Both climate extremes and agricultural disasters have been reported to increase in recent decades; however, so far, we have little idea on the characteristics of agricultural disasters changes, as
Agroclimatic conditions in Bulgaria and agricultural adaptation
The sole factors of major importance to Bulgaria’s agrarian output are temperature, and water probability. Between these two factors it is the component relating to soil moisture that proves more


Implications of climate change due to the enhanced greenhouse effect on floods and droughts in Australia
Potential impacts of climate change on heavy rainfall events and flooding in the Australian region are explored using the results of a general circulation model (GCM) run in an equilibrium enhanced
Impact of a CO2‐induced climatic change on river flow variability in three rivers in Belgium
A hydrological conceptual model developed by the Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium has been run to assess the potential hydrological impacts of an hypothetical doubling of the atmospheric CO2
Simulated Diurnal Range and Variability of Surface Temperature in a Global Climate Model for Present and Doubled C02 Climates
Abstract The variability of surface temperature simulated by a global climate model with a simple mixed-layer ocean is analyzed. The simulated diurnal and seasonal ranges of temperature are compared
Greenhouse warming and threshold temperature events in Victoria, Australia
Small changes in the mean climate can produce relatively large changes in the frequency of extreme events. Two experiments were performed: (i) a sensitivity study where observed temperatures at
Inter-decadal modulation of the impact of ENSO on Australia
Abstract The success of an ENSO-based statistical rainfall prediction scheme and the influence of ENSO on Australia are shown to vary in association with a coherent, inter-decadal oscillation in
Estimation of possible climate change impacts on water availability, extreme flow events and soil moisture in the Goulburn and Ovens Basins, Victoria
A rainfall-runoff model (IHACRES) is applied on a daily timestep to a large area of the state of Victoria, Australia. Successful calibrations of this dynamic lumped parameter model were performed for

Cloud-Radiative Forcing and Climate: Results from the Earth Radiation Budget Experiment
The size of the observed net cloud forcing is about four times as large as the expected value of radiative forcing from a doubling of CO2, and small changes in the cloud-radiative forcing fields can play a significant role as a climate feedback mechanism.
Climate Change and Hydrological Disasters
Many regard climate change as a disaster-in-waiting, a view reinforced by society’s evident dependence on systems to protect itself against the vagaries of weather (Ausubel, 1991), and in some
