STRANGE WEATHER: Understanding

July 26, 2014

What is rain? How is the Arctic region changing? How does space weather affect us here on Earth? The works in this section seek to understand the physical properties, processes and patterns of weather and climate. Additionally, the works take into account human activities and desires as one aspect of understanding the natural world. This is unusual in the natural sciences. Historically, understanding nature required erasing the contributions and traces of human activity. This collection of tools, maps and experiments explicitly include the human animal in the web of biogeochemical and physical interactions that comprise the patterns on our planet. Taken as a whole, these pieces help us understand that humankind both affects and is affected by the planetary processes we call weather and climate.
