Prof. John Sterman joins me to discuss tools for informed decision-making for climate change policy. For more info, visit Climate Interactive:
Including the "en-roads" climate simulator:
Prof. Anand Gnanadesikan joins me to discuss the sensitivity of oceanic oxygen to changes in atmospheric oxygen (specifically, the linear versus nonlinear components of this response), convection in climate models, and polynyas in climate models.
(For more on mixing in climate models, go back and listen to the Sonya Legg episode. And for more on polynyas in climate models, go back to the Ethan Campbell episode.)
Dr Anita Marshall on mobility-related disabilities and her role in The International Association for Geoscience Diversity (theIAGD.org), a non-profit dedicated to creating access and inclusion for students, faculty, and professionals with disabilities in the geosciences.
Meteorologist, climate journalist, and writer Eric Holthaus talks about his new book, titled "The Future Earth: A Radical Vision for What's Possible in the Age of Warming". We discuss the role of imagination and mutual care in addressing the climate crisis.
The new book is available here:
In the first of this series on Earth System scientists with disabilities, oceanographer Kaitlin Naughten talks about her experience with stammering (a.k.a. stuttering). We talk about a number of topics, including:
What is a disability? In particular, what is stammering / stuttering?
How does stammering affect life in science?
What is the "medical model" of disability? How about the "social model" of disability?
Representation and why it matters
Special accommodations for people who speak with a stammer
How to be a good listener when speaking to someone with a stammer
Are there any good things about stammering?
Episode produced by Dan Jones and Kaitlin Naughten
Professor Scott Denning from the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University joins me to talk about his semester teaching at sea, his research career working on the global carbon cycle (especially the atmospheric and land portions), and his pathway from geology into atmospheric science
The climate scientist and author joins me to discuss (1) his forthcoming book, The New Climate War, (2) the changing culture surrounding scientists and public and political engagement, and (3) social media use as a public scientist, among other topics.
Project scientist Rachel McCrary on statistical and dynamical downscaling techniques for studying how climate change affects precipitation and snowpack over North America | Her pathway into science | Our experiences with mental health in the geosciences
Oceanographer Sonya Legg joins me to discuss waves, mixing, and how she helps incorporate small-scale processes into large-scale climate models. We also discuss her role in the MPOWIR mentoring network and her pathway into science.
North Atlantic heat transport! Leadership! The future of online conferences! Physical oceanographer and president-elect of the American Geophysical Union Susan Lozier joins me to discuss these topics and more.
Atmospheric scientist Elizabeth Barnes (a.k.a. Libby Barnes) talks about how she uses artificial intelligence to better understand atmospheric and climate dynamics. We also discuss leadership/mentoring and her pathway into science.
How is the field of climate science going to change in the future? Michael White joins me to discuss his role as climate science editor for Nature magazine, his pathway into science, and his continued pathway into publishing.
How can scientists and science communicators be more engaging and effective when discussing climate change? Science communication expert Dr Sam Illingworth joins me to discuss the results of The Climate Communication Project (theclimatecommsproject.org).
Physical oceanographer David Marshall joins me to talk about creativity in both science and music, how we represent the effect of small-scale circulation in large-scale climate models, and his pathway into science.
Ocean/ice modeler Kaitlin Naughten joins me to talk about her love of computer programming, her pathway into science, and how processes at the ocean/ice interface are critical for understanding climate change.
Pete Davis joins me to talk about measuring turbulence under ice shelves, doing fieldwork in Antarctica, the intensity of the peer review process, and his pathway into science (with special guest Christian Buckingham).
PhD student and champion boxer Ella Gilbert joins me to talk about her careers in both climate science and competitive boxing.
The audio is still a little quiet - sorry about that. I'm working to make that better in future episodes.
