Climate Forecasts and Agriculture

Data Management
  • An Expert Team Meeting on Software for Agroclimatic Data Management was held in Washington, D.C., USA in October 2000 to assess the current status of software for agroclimatic data management and determine the future needs for more efficient management of agroclimatic data to foster improved agroclimatic applications. Participants in the meeting discussed climatic data management, crop and soil data management, remotely sensed data management and integrated packages.

Forestry and Fire Weather
  • Global Fire Monitoring Center (GFMC) The GFMC is an activity of the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR) and is hosted by the University of Freiburg, Germany. Selected GFMC web sited are listed below.

    • GFMC Wildland Fire Early Warning Portal Links to global, regional, and national fire weather forecasts and early warning systems.

    • International Forest Fire News (IFFN) IFFN is an activity of the Joint FAO/ECE/ILO Committee on Forest Technology, Management and Training, and the GFMC, in cooperation with the many other co-sponsors and partners. There is an archive of the semi-annual reports back to 1998 and country reports back to 1990.

  • Global Forest Resources Assessment Portal This Remote Sensing Survey portal provides access to global sample tiles and it enables the search, display and download of tile information, associated satellite imagery and auxiliary data. Coordinated by FAO with USGS, EC-JRC, Jena University, and South Dakota State University as partners.

Observations
  • Web Portal on Automatic Weather Stations: The Instruments and Methods of Observation Programme (IMOP) of the World Weather Watch (WWW) of the WMO provides an excellent web portal on the Development, Maintenance and Operation of Instruments, Observing Methods and Automatic Weather Stations. With over 50 links, topics include: Operational Guides & Guidelines, Siting and Exposure, Maintenance & Repairs, Methods of Observation, Algorithms & Procedures, Quality Assurance / Quality Control, Instruments Intercomparisons, New Sensor Developments, Papers & Presentations (presented at Conferences), Training Materials, and IMOP Reports.
