Abstract:
Researchers often come up against the challenge of effectively communicating complex data to an audience beyond academia. In the case of climate-change science, this challenge is a special one. Now a highly politicized issue, climate change has camps of interested parties among specialists, policy makers, and the general public. In such an environment, what should researchers do—and what do they need to do—to make the scientific data widely accessible and interpretable? Panelists: Ned Gardiner, Climate Visualization Project Manager at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)'s Climate Program Office; Gavin Schmidt, climate modeler at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, co-founder of the blog RealClimate.org, and co-author of a popular science book Climate Change: Picturing the Science; and Sabine Marx, Managing Director at the Center for Research on Environmental Decisions (CRED) at Columbia University.
