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 research, statistical and process-based methods of evaluating food production at regional to global scales, the representation of water scarcity, ozone, and nutrition in yield projections, and the use of crop and economic models to explore adaptation and mitigation strategies.

Abstracts are accepted up until August 6, 2014, at 23:59 ET. More information here.
