Posted: 7/4/2022 (CSDE in the News)

CSDE Affiliate Ann Bostrom has recently published three articles with a number of co-authors. First, in the International Journal of Disaster Risk Reduction, Bostrom and others present a scoping review of methods used to elicit individuals’ mental models of science or risk. The second study, published in Weather, Climate, and Society, aims to improve the usability and applicability of National Weather Service forecast information in the context of NWS core partners’ decisions during tropical cyclone threats. The research collected and analyzed data from in-depth interviews with broadcast meteorologists and emergency managers in 3 coastal U.S. states. The final article introduces the National Science Foundation (NSF) AI Institute for Research on Trustworthy AI in Weather, Climate, and Coastal Oceanography (AI2ES). To date AI2ES is the only NSF AI institute focusing on environmental science applications and focuses on developing trustworthy AI methods for weather, climate, and coastal hazards.
