      Wei, Taoyuan; Glomsrød, Solveig; Zhang, Tianyi (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      Three extreme weather scenarios are examined for agriculture in China in this study. One scenario assumes a year when every province has precipitation corresponding to the lowest level experienced in the province over the ...
    • Extreme weather impacts on maize yield: The case of Shanxi Province in China 

      Wei, Taoyuan; Zhang, Tianyi; Bruin, Karianne de; Glomsrød, Solveig; Shi, Qinghua (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017)
      Extreme weather can have negative impacts on crop production. In this study, we statistically estimate the impacts of dry days, heat waves, and cold days on maize yield based on household survey data from 1993 to 2011 in ...
