Sophie Flack‐Prain, Liangsheng Shi, Penghui Zhu, Humberto R. da Rocha, Osvaldo Cabral, Shun Hu, Mathew Williams
2020 GCB Bioenergy  
In Guangxi, median yield and yield lows (i.e. lower decile) were relatively insensitive to forecast climate change.  ...  Here we ask: how sensitive is sugarcane yield to future climate change, including climate extremes, and what are its key climate drivers?  ...  In addition, the authors thank Kasia Sawicka for her efforts in collating field data on sugarcane ecophysiology, and early model development.  ...

Aviation Turbulence: Dynamics, Forecasting, and Response to Climate Change

Luke N. Storer, Paul D. Williams, Philip G. Gill
2018 Pure and Applied Geophysics  
The scope of this paper is to review the dynamics of aviation turbulence, its response to climate change, and current forecasting methods at the cruising altitude of aircraft.  ...  Recent research suggests that turbulence will increase in frequency and strength with climate change, and therefore, turbulence forecasting may become more important in the future.  ...  This study has also reviewed how climate change is expected to have a large impact on clear-air turbulence in the future, with several studies finding that CAT will increase with climate change, particularly  ...
