Interview with Ms. Christine Shields #8
Listen now
Christine Shields is an Associate Scientist in the Climate Change Research Section at NCAR with expertise in simulating Earth’s past, present, and future climate with the Community Earth System Model.  Christine’s focus is toward understanding Earth’s hydrological cycle in the context of climate change, with particular emphasis on atmospheric rivers (ARs), monsoons, moisture transport, cyclones, and weather extremes.  Christine’s research spans much of Earth history, including simulations of Deep Time (millions of years ago), lead by Dr. Jeffrey Kiehl.  In this episode of Women In Environmental Science, we learn about climate change exacerbating multiple factors that influence natural disasters. We also learn about how climate models work and how we can look at the past to understand the future. Listen more to dive into an adventure of the present, past, and future and how humans can influence the Earth in ways we CAN imagine.
