Abstract Thailand is situated in a transition zone of overlap between the Indian monsoon (IM) and the western North Pacific (WNP) monsoon. The region serves as an important area to study the influences of different moisture sources. This study presents the first stable oxygen isotope analysis on seven teak (Tectona grandis Linn.) trees collected from Phrae Province in northern Thailand at different temporal resolutions. Isotopic analyses of teak tree rings at both annual and sub-annual timescale...

Abstract Measurements of the surface energy fluxes (turbulent and radiative) and other ancillary atmospheric/soil parameters made in the Columbia River Basin (Oregon) in an area of complex terrain during a 10-month long portion of the second Wind Forecast Improvement Project (WFIP 2) field campaign are used to study the surface energy budget (SEB) and surface fluxes over different temporal scales. This study analyzes and discusses SEB closure based on half-hourly, daily, monthly, seasonal, and s...

Abstract Hedgerows have the potential to facilitate the persistence and migration of species across landscapes, mostly due to benign microclimatic conditions. This thermal buffering function may become even more important in the future for species migration under climate change. Unfortunately, there is a lack of empirical studies quantifying the microclimate of hedgerows, particularly at broad geographical scales. Here we monitored sub-canopy temperatures using 168 miniature temperature sensors ...

Abstract Natural disasters may act as harmful causes of food insecurity in the Middle East. Frequent drought events, water scarcity, and unsustainable intensive agricultural practices may impact food security in the region. This paper investigates a causal relationship between drought and food security across the Middle East. Meteorological, agricultural, and hydrological droughts are analyzed at multiple timescales over the region for seven decades during the period of 1948–2017. We simulate fo...

Abstract The seasonal dynamic of gross primary productivity (GPP) has influences on the annual GPP (AGPP) of the terrestrial ecosystem. However, the spatiotemporal variation of the seasonal dynamic of GPP and its effects on spatial and temporal variations of AGPP are still poorly addressed. In this study, we developed a parameter, αGPP, defined as the ratio of mean daily GPP (GPPmean) to the maximum daily GPP (GPPmax) during the growing season, to analyze the seasonal dynamic of GPP based on Wei...

Abstract We present an analysis of the sensitivity of three key crops (alfalfa, barley and winter wheat) produced in the northwestern United States to climatic and agricultural market anomalies using widely used standardized indices. Rather than investigating sensitivity of crop yields (production per unit area), we focus on agricultural production (yield * harvested area) anomalies, which captures both variations in yield and the effect of decision-making factors such as allocation of cropping ...

Abstract Leaf-boundary-layer conductance (ga), which is mainly affected by airflow near the leaf surface, is an important limiting factor on energy budgets, transpiration and photosynthesis, especially under very light-wind conditions. However, little research has been done, with a focus on the direct evaluation of ga under such conditions, because of the difficulty in measuring slower wind speeds that continuously vary in space and time. Here we propose a reasonable airflow assessment using spa...

Abstract Sufficient chilling in winter is essential for many perennial crops to start growing in spring and to produce good yields. Using blackcurrants as an example we have developed improved models which can help identify varieties resilient to the variable winters expected as the climate warms. Controlled temperature experiments were used to calibrate 3 proposed models of chilling accumulation requirements for a number of commercial blackcurrant cultivars. The first model assumed a linear rel...

Abstract Urban trees provide benefits and services, like improving environmental quality and mitigating impacts of climate change on human health, e.g. through the reduction of greenhouse gases effects, the removal of pollutants from the atmosphere and the improvement of water quality through interception of pollution. Tree transpiration in a multi-species urban garden in southern Italy was investigated for one year, on hourly, daily, seasonal and annual time scale. Water status of trees was det...

Abstract Land Surface Models (LSM) have shown some difficulties to properly simulate day-time 2-m air and surface skin temperatures. This kind of models are coupled to atmospheric models in mesoscale modelling, such as the Regional Atmospheric Modeling System (RAMS) and the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model. This model coupling is used within Numerical Weather Prediction Systems (NWP) in order to forecast key physical processes for agricultural meteorology and forestry as well as in e...
