Adam Sobel

Adam Sobel is a professor at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and Engineering School, where he studies the dynamics of climate and weather phenomena, with a focus on understanding the risks to human society from extreme weather and climate change. He is author or co-author of over 150 peer-reviewed scientific articles; a popular book about Hurricane Sandy, Storm Surge; and numerous op-eds. Sobel also hosts Deep Convection, a podcast featuring real conversations between climate scientists.

“It’s a chance to talk with friends and colleagues through the purpose and meaning of being a scientist at a time when so much, and especially climate, has become intensely political, and the relationship between science and the rest of society is contentious and unstable.”
