Climate scientists will shed new light on climate change mitigation
Date:9/16/2011

t Africa, satellite observations demonstrate that brief changes in soil moisture over areas of just tens of kilometres can influence storm generation. According to Dr Chris Taylor from the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology in the UK, the monsoon can arrive abruptly in the Sahel. The relative timing of planting and the start of the wet season can mean the difference between a good crop and no crop at all.

- Soil types change over time. For instance, deforestation removes organic matter from the soil and, in the long term, can change the soil type substantially and affect storm and rainfall patterns, he says.

Borderless Science panel discussion

An International Panel gathers on Monday, 19 September immediately after the opening keynote session to discuss Borderless Science and the new directions in land-atmosphere research. The Panel Discussion is proceeding by an introduction by the Panel Moderator Professor Pavel Kabat, the chair of International Science Panel of GEWEX (Global Energy and Water Experiment), a core project of World Climate Research Programme (WCRP). The panel members include representatives from NASA, European research and funding organisations, and universities around the world.
