Caltech Postdoctoral Scholar, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory at University of Reading, Currently at NASA JPL
Mark Richardson was at the University of Reading, where he was researching how light travels through snow to help improve satellite measurements. He has recently moved to the CalTech/NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, where he works on the physics of light in the atmosphere and particularly satellite measurements of clouds. His research interests are in how clouds react to climate change, and whether they reinforce it or slow it down. Denial101x will follow Mark as he goes through the evidence that we are strengthening the greenhouse effect that has driven recent global warming, and some of the myths that come from misunderstanding this evidence.
