Invitation to conference
The seminar will be hosted in Ås, Norway from 4- 5th May 2022 with an excursion on the 6 th May.
The objective of the seminar is to bring new knowledge on soil and water conservation under changing climate in Northern or high altitude conditions. Climate change is expected to bring changes in precipitation, rainfall, frozen soils, snowmelt conditions, drought periods and extreme weather that will affect runoff and hydrological pathways in the agricultural landscape. Also, soil functions and soil health will face new challenges. These changes will influence losses of nutrients and erosion processes- and put pressures on the need of efficient measures. Best management practices must be revised and developed to expected changes in climate. The seminar will also address monitoring, modelling and development of planning tools for analysing effects and planning for adaptation measures.
