Show Notes

We are continuing our collaboration between Carry the Two and the American Geophysical Union’s Third Pod from the Sun with another episode!

Jane Baldwin’s research centers issues of equity when it comes to understanding climate change’s impact on the global population. In this episode, we hear how Jane gets clever with data sources to better understand risk and vulnerability to tropical cyclones in the Philippines and discusses the importance of building useful climate models.

And don’t forget to listen to Jane’s work through a geophysical lens, over at Third Pod from the Sun!
