The New York Times’ blog Scientists at Work is a good example of how scientists’ communication might focus on process, not results. I’ve been enjoying the current sequence about glaciers in Bhutan; each episode ends with a cliffhanger!
A couple of words in the most recent post jumped out at me, though. In addition to “reconstructing the history” and “behavior” of the glacier–how it “changed in the past”–the scientist-author explained his interest in figuring out what the glacier was like when it “last maintained a robust, healthy profile.” Healthy?
