Session 9 Linking Physical Sciences, Operational Meteorology, and Social Science to Better Understand Societal Impacts

Wednesday, 9 January 2019: 1:30 PM-2:30 PM
North 226AB (Phoenix Convention Center - West and North Buildings)
Host: 14th Symposium on Societal Applications: Policy, Research and Practice
Danielle Nagele, Innovim, LLC, Damascus, MD and Kodi Berry, CIMMS/NSSL, Research Scientist, HWT Executive Officer, Sea Grant Extension Liaison, Norman, OK

Bridging social and physical sciences can be challenging when working to understand user needs. And moving between research and operational contexts poses different challenges for physical and social scientists. At its heart, we all work to better understand how to integrate our respective knowledges to learn more about societal impacts and create research and applications that serve society's needs. This session will present issues of linking across disciplines, among experts and trainees, and between research and operations.
