Impacts On Climate And Agriculture Of Geoengineering, Volcanic Eruptions, And Nuclear Winter

Description

The issue of climate change will certainly affect the quality of life in New Jersey, including the environment, agriculture, and water resources. The proposed work will address the causes of climate change, potential climate change responses to geoengineering, volcanic eruptions, and nuclear war, and how climate change will impact us. The work will be related to agriculture, in that it will include the production of future scenarios of climate change that can be used to plan for different agricultural practices, and will consider geoengineering techniques to control the climate, which will affect agriculture. The work will also include modeling of the impacts of various climate change scenarios on agricultural production using crop models. The studies of soil moisture and irrigation will have implications in many locations, including New Jersey.
