Weather patterns are changing and presenting unique challenges to the agricultural community, both in Ohio and across the globe. An upcoming webinar will focus on the changing weather patterns, how those shifts have impacted the industry and ways the ag community can adapt.
On June 20, 2019 at 11 a.m. EST Webinar host Aaron Wilson will take an hour long look at the changing climate. Wilson is an atmospheric scientist at The Ohio State University and an expert in weather, climatology and climate change. He holds a joint appointment as a research scientist at the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center, as a climate specialist with OSU Extension and is a contributing member to the State Climate Office of Ohio. His recent work focuses on the local impacts of changing weather patterns, particularly those affecting the ag sector.
The session will cover:
- Challenges a changing climate presents to Ohio’s ag sector.
- How agriculture can impact our changing climate.
- Effects of increasing greenhouse gases.
- Differences between weather and climate.
- Local and global context for impacts.
- How temperatures and precipitation have already affected agriculture in Ohio.
- An opportunity to ask questions.
Listeners will get an update on scientific projections for the future, learn ways the ag community can adapt, get deeper understanding of weather and the impacts of our changing climate, and find out about mitigation efforts to limit greenhouse gas emissions and enrich our soils.
