Lisa Doner, research assistant professor, is collaborating with Bentley College on a $250,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to work on assessing how climate change is communicated by broadcast meteorologists to their audiences. The project is titled “Enhancing Climate Change Communication between Broadcast Meteorologists and Viewing Audiences.” Through a series of interviews with broadcast meteorologists and surveys of meteorology training programs, researchers will investigate the extent to which meteorologists receive training about climate science and the geophysical mechanisms for climate change. In addition, workshops on climate science will be developed for TV/radio broadcast meteorologists and news directors within the New England area as well as a larger community of meteorology practitioners within the northeast U.S. region. Others working on the project at PSU include Lourdes Aviles, associate professor of meteorology, Samuel Miller, associate professor of meteorology, and Mary Ann McGarry, associate professor of science education. Collaborators at Bentley College are P. Thompson Davis, professor of geology and climatology; Eric Oches, associate professor of geology; David Szymanski; assistant professor of geology; and Helen Meldrum, associate professor of psychology.
