We are delighted that Professor Mike Rivington from James Hutton Institute in Aberdeen has agreed to provide the opening keynote talk at CPNB24 on 'Climate change impacts on land: a north-south divide'.

In his talk Mike will present a suite of modelling and data visualisation tools to illustrate the spatial and temporal variations in climate change impacts across the UK. These include: the spatial application of crop simulation models, the Land Capability for Agriculture classification system and a wide range of agrometeorological indicators and climate summaries and extremes, all presented as maps. Together these illustrate how land capability and crop production (using barley as an example) may vary with 12 different climate projections in Scotland, whilst the agrometeorological indicators show how key climatic factors influencing agriculture across the whole UK have changed in the past and likely to do so in the future.
