Agroclimatology, including the analysis of risks in agriculture associated with climate variability and the development of web-based decision-aid tools to help decision makers mitigate crop production risks. Current extension efforts include the development of a web-based climate information system for the SE USA that combines climate information and forecast with decision aid tools. Decision aid tools are based on research linking agricultural models, such as crop growth models, disease models and water quality models, with climate models for better understanding the impacts of seasonal climate variability on agriculture, including crop yield and development, environmental quality and crop insurance strategies.Previous experience include the integration of water quality models with GIS software, development of crop forecast systems based on crop models and the application of crop models to precision agriculture technology.
