Communicating Climate Science from a Data-Centered Perspective
Communicating climate science research is a process encumbered by disparate frames of reference and context between scientist and audience. Fostering mutual context between climate scientists and the public is explored by using scientific observations, rather than scientific results, as a framework for mutual understanding. Challenges facing scientific researchers and suggestions to improve communication between scientists and the public are explored.
