The social sciences, much like the physical sciences, is a term that represents many disciplines. Just as the physical sciences represent meteorology, climatology, physics, engineering etc, so too does the social sciences with disciplines such as communication, sociology, human geography, economics, etc. This session is meant to be the first in a series of panels to uncover some of the science behind these disciplines. In this panel, we'll uncover some of the science, theory and applications behind the discipline of communication. Panelists will provide an array of examples of how communication science can benefit the weather and climate community, and further, how thinking about communication may impact our partnerships, collaborations, and interactions with our many audiences including each other, customers or even the public.
