Host Brent Ragsdale visits the University of Kansas’ Department of Geography and Atmospheric Science to interview Assistant Teaching Professor Dr. Qinjian Jin about his contributions to the recent paper by Dr. James Hansen and colleagues titled Global Warming in the Pipeline.  According to Dr. Hansen, Dr. Jin’s expertise in aerosol-climate interactions specifically related to shipping emissions and his calculations of the geographical distribution of the sulfate aerosols of the shipping industry was one of the key inputs in the scientific story presented in the Pipeline paper.

Brent also visits with Dr. David Rahn, Associate Professor and the Department’s Director of Graduate Studies about the undergraduate and graduate program in Atmospheric Science at KU.  This will be a great hour full of vital information for our planet.
