Changes in seasonality were also found - such as earlier runoff peaks in spring in Siberia due to earlier snow melt. Now Met Office Hadley Centre climate models are being extended to include large scale crop models, and soil carbon and nitrogen models as well as river flows, my questions for the theme are:
- How will changes in rainfall and river flow affect soil erosion?
- How will climate change affect nutrient losses in agricultural systems?
- How will these changes interact with future land use changes?
- What is the impact of these changes on the agricultural system (productivity, management, irrigation..)?
