Interactive Visioning Part 2 - Figuring Sea Level Rise

8/9/2013; 58 minutes

Examine how research on the rising oceans is both conducted and disseminated to the public through sophisticated, visually rich, and often interactive techniques of measuring and modeling. With a focus on tools for depicting current and future sea level rise--for example, interactive sites that enable the user to toggle up the sea height across a certain area of the earth's surface--be inspired to take cognizance of how humans are remaking the geography of our planet, and how we might intervene in that process, creatively, and in the interest of climate justice. Speakers: Jeremy Weiss,
Senior Research Specialist, Department of Geosciences, University of Arizona; Marko Peljhan, Professor of Art, UC Santa Barbara; Bruce Caron, Executive Director, New Media Studio, Santa Barbara; James Frew, Professor, Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, UC Santa Barbara. Moderator: Lisa Jevbratt, Professor of Art, UC Santa Barbara. Recorded on 2/1/2013.
