Improving the Simulation of Climate Impacts on Agriculture: AgMIP and Related Research

Session ID#: 25796

Session Description:
Agricultural models simulate the effects of climate on crop yields, farm income, and trade, making them important tools for examining food security. This session will focus on research at the interface of climate, agriculture, and economics, including results from the Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP). Topics of particular interest include the creation of climate and socioeconomic scenarios for agricultural projections, statistical and process-based methods of evaluating food production, the sensitivity of crops to carbon dioxide, water, temperature, and nitrogen, interactions between agriculture and extreme events, seasonal crop monitoring and forecasting, the use of agricultural and economic models to explore climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies, and research that enables coordinated global and regional studies of climate impacts on agriculture for IPCC Assessment Reports and US National Climate Assessments.
