History and recent results of climate change science
By interacting with professional climatologists through an interactive web site, I have worked toward “translating” aspects of climate science into a presentation that makes sense to people who are trained professionally in physics but are not climatologists. As part of this project I have learned that, only within the last few months, there have been major breakthroughs in the field that have resolved important questions. A brief history of the field is given, as well as a discussion of the new results and the dire implications for the future. The presentation is given using a subset of new, professionally edited PPT slides to be used for the ongoing University of Connecticut Physics of the Environment course.
