President’s greeting

Dear Members
of the Korean Society of Agricultural and Forest Meteorology and homepage visitors.
Welcome to our homepage.

I am Dr. Lim Jong-hwan, the president of the Korean Society of Agricultural and Forest Meteorology.

The Korean Society of Agricultural and Forest Meteorology (KSAFM) deals with the basic and applied sciences of agriculture and forest ecosystem and related industries. Our society contributes greatly to field-oriented academic research and our role is increasing as the development of science and technology and the uncertainty caused by climate change increase.

Since the foundation in March 1999, our society has continued to make great achievements and progress through active participation of our members to academic contributions, and the efforts of previous executives. The Korean Journal of Agricultural and Forest Meteorology, published by our society, ranks at the top tier of the related academic journals in Korea Citation Index, which is evaluated annually by the Korea Research Foundation. I appreciate the efforts of our members to be recognized as excellence in journal quality.

I hope that the 20th anniversary of the our society in 2019 will be an opportunity for our society to make a new leap forward. To this end, I would like to promote communication and exchange of ideas between our members and to make members’ achievements known widely to contribute to the development of the field, policies, and other academic field. I will systematize the operation of the society according to the status of ours. I will inform the members in a transparent and detailed manner as well as filling the gaps. In addition, I will do my best to make our society where you want to learn, meet, and participate.

It is my honor to serve as the president of the Korean Society of Agricultural and Forest Meteorology. I promise to do my best for the development of the society. I look forward to your interest and participation.
