Adventures in Science
Breaking Science is a YouTube-based science news show highlighting recent advances in research in a fun way.
We've teamed up with NCAR Education and Outreach to produce videos showcasing science field campaigns.
Why Bioenergy Isn't Ready to Save the Planet
Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) is a promising technology to help us in our pursuit of generating cleaner energy. There are still some kinks to iron out, though. Come explore BECCS with us a bit more in this latest video. If you're into what we're doing, leave a comment, give us a like, and follow our channel!

Dan Rather, Science, and You
Every year, thousands of scientists, businesspeople, teachers, and the general public gather at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union. This year, the keynote speaker was Dan Rather, who gave an excellent talk on science communication. Check out our recap on his talk, but be sure to check the full speech out for yourself! https://eos.org/articles/dan-rathers-vision-for-scientists-in-an-era-of-fake-news Give us a like, leave a comment, and subscribe!
NCAR Education and Outreach
The Science of WE-CAN
The Western Wildfire Experiments for Cloud Chemistry, Aerosol Absorption, and Nitrogen (WE-CAN) took place July 22- Sept 18, 2018. This video describes the major scientific questions that WE-CAN investigates. Field Campaign Overview Understanding the chemistry in western wildfire smoke has major ramifications for air quality, nutrient cycles, weather and climate. This project systematically characterizes the emissions and first day of evolution of western U.S. wildfire plumes, focusing on three sets of scientific questions related to fixed nitrogen, absorbing aerosols, and cloud activation and chemistry in wildfire plumes. The data were collected from the NCAR/NSF C-130 research aircraft. More about WE-CAN https://www.eol.ucar.edu/field_projects/we-can
La Ciencia de WE-CAN
La campaña de campo Western Wildfire Experiments for Cloud Chemistry, Aerosol Absorption, and Nitrogen (WE-CAN) ocurrió del 22 de julio al 18 de septiembre de 2018. Este video describe las preguntas científicas principales que investiga WE-CAN. Visión general de la campaña de campo La comprensión de la química en el humo de los incendios forestales occidentales tiene importantes ramificaciones para la calidad del aire, los ciclos de nutrientes, el tiempo y el clima. Este proyecto caracteriza sistemáticamente las emisiones y el primer día de evolución de las plumas de los incendios forestales del oeste de los EE. UU. El estudio se enfoca en tres conjuntos de preguntas científicas relacionadas con el nitrógeno fijo, los aerosoles absorbentes, y la activación de nubes y la química en las plumas de incendios forestales. Los datos se obtuvieron con el uso del avión de investigación NCAR / NSF C-130. Más sobre WE-CAN https://www.eol.ucar.edu/field_projects/we-can
Education and Outreach During RELÁMPAGO
RELÁMPAGO, or the Remote Sensing of Electrification, Lightning, and Mesoscale/Microscale Processes with Adaptive Ground Observations, is a field campaign supported by NCAR in Argentina and active from June 1, 2018 to April 30, 2019. This video describes some of the science education and outreach that took place as part of the RELÁMPAGO field campaign. Field Campaign Overview: RELÁMPAGO will provide unique observations of atmospheric and surface conditions in a region with substantial terrain and explore a regime of convection not observed comprehensively. RELÁMPAGO will form a key part of an observation network that will elucidate the tight connections between the land surface, complex terrain, convective development, and the production of severe weather, role of terrain processes in initiating and developing organized convective systems and altering flows within and above the convective boundary layer, and roles of environmental moisture, aerosols, and instability on the resultant intensity, organization, precipitation, and high impact weather production of deep convective systems. Through its unique configuration of atmospheric profiling and remote sensing capabilities, understanding of processes that impact prediction of societal hazards will be improved.
