Southwest Climate Podcasts

Lead Investigator:  

El Niño, the monsoon, increasing temperatures, and dwindling reservoir storage are just a few of the climate-related issues that periodically punctuate the news cycle in the Southwest. CLIMAS scientists discuss these issues in monthly climate podcasts and special podcast series. The podcasts synthesize information from disparate sources, translating the national and global discussions for the Southwest. The podcasts also bring in the latest climate science, covering climate-related topics with nuance but not shrouded in technical jargon.

There is little media that focuses on synthesizing and adding value to climate events and science in real time. These podcasts represent a novel way of informing the Southwest about current and future conditions. It is also another avenue in which CLIMAS can maintain routine contact with our stakeholders and the media. Information presented in the podcasts has been used in other media forms, such as radio and print.
