The importance of communicating science, the value of art-science collaborations and the vulnerability of the Greenland Ice Sheet are the main topics of my radio interview at Monocle24, available to download HERE
At EGU I had the pleasure of talking about BioSNICAR and biological albedo reduction with two of the big-names in albedo research. A very interesting point they raised was that the term ‘bioalbedo’ does not precisely describe the concept that it is attached to. This is true. The term bioalbedo was not coined by spectroscopy … Continue reading Bio-co-albedo?
I’m sharing my workflow for processing and analysing spectra obtained using the ASD Field Spec Pro, partly as a resource and partly to see whether others have refinements or suggestions for improving the protocols. I’m specifically using Python rather than any proprietary software to keep it all open source, transparent and to keep control over … Continue reading ASD spectra processing with Linux & Python
The EGU annual meeting in Vienna is one of the major events in the earth science calendar, where the latest ideas are aired and discussed and new collaborations forged. My talk this year was in the “Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere” session. Here’s an overview: Albedo is a primary driver of snow melt. For clean … Continue reading CASPA at EGU 2018
