End of Species - 18-25 August 2014

"End of species" is a monologue by Australian artist Richard Pettifer, arranged by ASCUS, the art-science collaborative, every day from 18th to 25th August 2014 at 8pm in Summerhall, interweaving his journey over land from Australia to Germany with Charles Darwin's famous journey. After the monologue, Richard had a "fireside chat" with a climate scientist - that was me.

Position paper on surface temperatures published - comments are welcome

Earth's surface temperatures; from Merchant et al. 2013, GID (CC-BY 3.0)

The EarthTemp community position paper, which reviews the state of art of measuring the surface temperatures of Earth and recommends steps to improve our understanding, has been published as a discussion paper in the open access journal Geoscientific Instrumentation, Methods and Data Systems (Discussions) (GI(D)). As the paper aims to capture a community position and influence future science funding and policy decisions, all interested colleagues are encouraged to submit comments or reviews during the discussion phase (until 6 August) which will then be considered (together with the invited peer-reviews) when preparing the final version of the paper.

Programme EarthTemp Workshop "Extreme regions"

The programm for the EarthTemp Workshop "Characterising surface temperatures in data-sparse and extreme regions (with focus on high-latitude domains)" on the 12.-14.
