Agricultural Meteorology Conference Session

EMS_logoThe European Meteorological Society (EMS) annual conference is coming to Ireland this September. The European Conference for Applied Meteorology and Climatology will run from the 4th – 8th September 2017 in Dublin. The conference already has over 800 presenters this year from all related sectors.

This year there is a dedicated session on Agricultural Meteorology. Attendance, as well as presenting is open to all (conference fee applies). Ireland’s agricultural sector is well recognised and respected internationally. This provides a great opportunity to highlight Ireland’s activities in the agrometeorology area.

The agrometeorology session will cover topics similar to:

  • Agrometerological monitoring and forecasting methods
  • Providing agrometeorological information to support decision making in agriculture
  • Agrometeorological modelling (e.g. modelling agrometeorological related diseases, frost protection warning methods, drought indices etc.)
  • Interactions/feedback of farmers and other end users of agrometeorological products and services
  • Weather and climatic extremes and their impact on agriculture
  • Methods of measurements and observations (e.g. ground based equipment, remote sensing products, citizen science, Big Data and SmartAg etc.)
  • Communicating uncertainty and graphical representation for decision makers (e.g. GIS, timelapse, geolocation, ensembles etc.)
  • Climate change impacts on agriculture observed and/or predicted
  • Agrometeorological networks
  • Agrometeorological training and education

If you are interested and would like to find out more see EMS2017 for more information.

We hope to see you there!
