Grace, Jon, and Jeff bid a not-so-fond farewell to 2018. The gang talk about their favorite papers of the year, science low-lights, and their podcast resolutions for the upcoming year. And, to wrap up the year, we return with America's favorite game, five questions. What would your lab mascot be? What are the sounds of owls mating? Have you seen Twin Peaks? Also, Jeff learns about the limnology challenge he has to face and everyone learns what the 2019 Major Revisions stickers are going to look like!
Papers of 2018 coming soon!
Lawrence Arms - 100 Resolutions
Todd Snider - Long Year
Dr. Ben Cook from NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies. Ben is a climate scientist broadly interested in interactions between the land surface and climate system, with a focus on drought and hydroclimate. We talk about drought, understanding the climate system, working across scales, Ben's upcoming book, and how we think about hazards. This episode was recorded live at the 2018 AGU Fall Meeting in Washington, DC. Follow Ben on Twitter at @dustybowl.
Pre-Order Ben's book "Drought--An Interdisciplinary Perspective"
Dismemberment Plan - "The Face of the Earth"
Priests - "Nothing Feels Natural"
We welcome Dr. Kyla Dahlin from Michigan State University to the show. Kyla's research aims to better understand and quantify ecosystem processes and disturbance responses through the application of emerging technologies, including air- and space-borne remote sensing, spatial statistics, and process-based modeling. We also talk about kids, life, and giant slingshots. Follow Kyla on Twitter: @bristleweed or @ERSAM_lab. This episode was recorded at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in Washington, DC 2018
