Effective Communication about Global Climate Change

by Riley Hoffman

In the most recent rendition of their article “Communicating climate change: conduits, content, and consensus”, Pearce, Brown, Nerlich, and Koteyko discuss the importance of the way that people like scientists and policy makers are portraying global climate change. In order to be most effective, they must understand how the general population is receiving their information, how they are likely to react based on what is being said, and how likely it is that they will believe it.

Using Cloud Computing to Monitor Climate Change

by Tyler Dean

The department of Biomedical Engineering at the Adhiyamaan College of Engineering has proposed a system that provides monitoring benefits to a large number of users by deploying a collection of observed data over a long period of time. The system uses a combination of advanced technologies to collect comprehensible environmental data that can be accessed from any location online. The system requires sensors for air pollution, temperature and humidity of a selected place. The data acquisition system acquires the data of temperature, humidity, pollution of air including Illumination, dust, carbon dioxide, ultraviolet, wind direction, wind speed, air pressure and the altitude from remote sensing areas .The system can be used for intrusion detection, used to remotely monitor the conditions of a place, to determine the habitat of a place and to field conditions to specify which cultivation is suitable for a region.
