Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"This volume aims to review advances made in seasonal climate predictions and applications for management and decision making in agriculture during the first five years of CLIMAG. … This book will appeal particularly to researchers interested on societal impacts of climate variability, staff of national meteorological and hydrological services … and agricultural experts and extension specialists who want to survey the current status of climate prediction for agriculture. … helpful in a graduate seminar on climate affairs, climate/society interactions, or applied climatology." (Guillermo Podestá, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, February, 2009)
