Part of the Data Visualization Google+ Hangouts Curriculum Collection.
In this Google+ Hangout, Dr. Richard Pearson and Dr. Scott Goetz discuss a data visualization about the Arctic's greener future. The ecologists brief participants and answer questions about patterns of plant growth in the Arctic, the connections between Arctic vegetation and the climate, and how computer modeling is enabling scientists to predict what the Arctic landscape may look like in 50 years. The panel also offer tips for interpreting the visualization for audiences.
The Hangout features two researchers whose work is highlighted in the data visualization:
Dr. Richard Pearson Research Associate, American Museum of Natural History and Lecturer, University College London
Dr. Scott Goetz Deputy Director and Senior Scientist, Woods Hole Research Center
