Potential Impacts of Climate Change on World Food Supply: Datasets from a Major Crop Modeling Study
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_GISS_CROPCLIM_DB


Summary
Abstract: Datasets from a Major Crop Modeling Study contain projected country and regional changes in grain crop yields due to global climate change. Equilibrium

and transient scenarios output from General Circulation Models (GCMs) with three levels of farmer adaptations to climate change were utilized to generate crop yield estimates of wheat,

rice, coarse grains (barley and maize), and protein feed ... View entire text

Purpose: To provide an assessment of potential climate change impacts on world crop production, including quantitative estimates of yield changes of major

food.
