    Weathering the Storm: Climate Change & Mental Health

    Weathering the Storm: Climate Change & Mental Health

    Introduction:  As Weather Geeks, we know that the climate is changing and the Earth has needs that it wants to meet. As human beings, we are also changing and our bodies and minds have needs that they want met as well. Both of these sets of needs cannot be ignored or else there will be ramifications down the line. Scientists who are tasked with tackling and researching climate change are starting to experience mental and emotional health issues, because of all the pressures that this monumental event brings. My guest today is Susanne Moser, who is shedding light on these issues, along with the personal challenges that being an on-camera meteorologist in this current age brings.

    The Inner Workings of an NWS Office

    The Inner Workings of an NWS Office

    Guest:  Keith Stellman, Meteorologist-in-Charge NWS Atlanta

    Intro:The National Weather Service is a lot more than the blaring alerts on your TV when there is a tornado warning in your area or the notifications on your phone about the severe thunderstorm watch issued for your state. The NWS operates over 120 weather forecast offices across the country and each office is constantly issuing local public, marine, aviation, fire, and hydrology forecasts 24/7! The NWS never sleeps because the weather itself never sleeps, and I’m sure my next guest can attest to many sleepless nights on the job. Keith Stellman is the Meteorologist-in-Charge for NWS Atlanta/Peachtree City, and as I know personally, this area rarely has a dull weather day!

    Strange Clouds - Pyrocumulonimbus

    Strange Clouds - Pyrocumulonimbus

    Guest: Dr. David Peterson, NASA/Naval Research Lab

    As millions of acres have been ablaze across Australia in recent weeks, those wildfires have formed incredible smoke plumes that tower thousands of feet into the atmosphere. These “pyrocumulonimbus clouds” can transport massive amounts of smoke and ash into the sky, and some of that smoke has even been found to have circled the globe! Today’s guest is Dr. David Peterson from the Naval Research Lab, and his research focuses on the far-reaching impacts these monster clouds can have, including how they generate their own weather! We’ll discuss what techniques he uses to observe these events and whether or not we can expect more events in a warming climate.

    The Father of Environmental Justice

    The Father of Environmental Justice

    Intro:  With the increasing number of climate change impacts being seen across the globe, it is becoming apparent that not all communities are affected equally. Today’s guest has dedicated his career to being a champion for at-risk populations facing environmental challenges, and has even been lauded as the Father of Environmental Justice. Dr. Robert Bullard is an award-winning author and also serves as a Distinguished Professor of Urban Planning and Environmental Policy at Texas Southern University. We’ll discuss how his work aims to bring attention to such humanitarian crises and how we can work together to secure the environmental health and resilience of all communities being affected by extreme weather.

    The Earth Archive Project

    The Earth Archive Project

    Guest: Chris Fisher, Archaeologist Colorado State University

    Intro: It is no secret that our Earth is changing, but it may be faster than you’d think! What if we had the ability to see what parts of the Earth were changing day-by-day? How much of the Southeast U.S. coast is shrinking due to sea level rise? Or how raging wildfires in California are changing our landscapes? Well, there is a group of scientists who are taking the initiative on this! My guest today is archaeologist Chris Fisher, who is the co-owner of the Earth Archive Project. This project will use LIDAR technology to take high-quality imagery of the most vulnerable places on our planet and help preserve them for future generations.

    AMS Centennial in Boston

    Guest: Dr. Marshall Shepherd

    Intro: As you are listening to this episode, the American Meteorological Society’s annual meeting will be going on in Boston. These large gatherings only happen once a year...but this year is something special! It is the 100th meeting of the AMS, commonly called the Centennial. As I was the former president of the AMS and had to work through the logistics of organizing this wonderful meeting with some of the greatest weather and climate minds in the country, I wanted to make a quick episode to highlight all that AMS has to offer those in the Meteorology field!
