Description of scientific projects
Simulation of the potential impact of climate and global change, including climate variability, on agricultural systems, especially crop productivity and use of natural resources. This research includes the use of outputs of GCMs that are linked to crop simulation models and decision support systems. Monitoring of weather and climate variability across the state of Georgia, using automated weather stations and other remote sensing techniques.
