Climate variability

Big data is essential for farmers to adapt to climate variability

A new study from Michigan State University sheds light on how big data and digital technologies can help farmers better adapt to threats – present and future – of a changing climate. The study, published in Scientific Reports, is the first to accurately quantify soil and landscape characteristics and spatial and temporal variations in yield […]

Climate models

Climate models predict even more warming, which concerns scientists

A handful of climate projections predict a rise in global temperatures much higher than what scientists have seen in previous models. Although the number raises concerns, some scientists hope the latest projections are outliers. A 2 degree rise in temperature could lead to rising sea levels, the death of coral reefs and dangerous water scarcity […]
