The 2020 AGMET Conference will be run jointly with the International Symposium on Climate-Resilient Agri-Environmental Systems (IS-CRAES) organized by the Climate-Resilient Agri-Environmental Systems (CRAES) group in University College Dublin (UCD) in the Talbot Hotel, Dublin on Tuesday 19th to Friday 22nd May 2020.
Research under the Agrometeorology theme addresses the challenges of integrating climate and meteorological insights into agricultural management and adaptation to climate change. The session features research on extreme weather events, adaptation to climate change, soil-vegetation-atmosphere transfer (SVAT), weather-related soil processes as well as research that showcases the use of meteorological or climate data for applications in land management and risk assessment (e.g. for disease or insect pest spread).
Research on forecast systems, and other weather-related decision support is also welcome. To develop a place-based understanding of meteorological impacts on farming systems, farmer involvement in the collection of meteorological data could also be discussed as well as the modelling of the spatio-temporal variation in meteorological conditions to fill in sparse weather data (as e.g. done in the MÉRA: climate re-analysis dataset produced by Met Éireann). A well-developed understanding of climate drivers of soil and vegetation processes as well as a good understanding of how an altered climate may affect agriculture is needed for sustainable agricultural and land-based energy systems.
Abstract Submission Deadline Further Extended to 27th January 2020!
Due to high demand the abstract submission deadline has been extended until the 27th January 2020. Sessions are filling up fast, we advise you to submit your abstract as soon as possible.
The Symposiums opening speech will be delivered by Mairead McGuinness, Vice President of the European Parliament. More information about the Agrometeorology theme of the symposium can be found here
