In Section 1 several scenarios based on instrumentally observed historical climatic data, and on results from a general circulation model (GISS), were selected. In this section we use models to estimate the impacts associated with these scenarios on barley yields in Finland. Two methods were used, one based on the longest available temperature and precipitation records expressed as monthly averages and the other one on more detailed daily meteorological records for the years 1959–83. Two study areas were selected: Uusimaa province, covering the area around Helsinki at latitudes 60–61 °N, to represent southern Finland; and the Talousseura region, centered on Oulu in the agricultural subdistrict of northern Bothnia, at latitudes 63 ° 50′–66 °N, to represent the northern limit of the present barley growing area (Figure 1.3).
