The 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
