What does a scientist's life look like? Follow #dayofscience and check out @science_a_thon for dozens of fun examples! Here's my day, below.
My #dayofscience began in France...virtually, that is! I'm on the scientific advisory board for @ENGIEgroup who's aiming to be the first carbon-neutral energy company. We met in person last year (below) but this year was a virtual MS Team mtg with colleagues from around the world
Next, I headed over to Ohio to talk to the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission about mitigation and climate resilience. It was a hybrid event with the host being live and me online. Lots of questions + great discussion!

Today for #EarthScienceWeek @earthsciweek we're thinking about Earth Science and Decolonisation.

We'll be adding to this thread with some resources on this topic throughout the day, and we would like it you could add yours too! #DayOfScience
...We're not experts on this topic by any means- but we are learning and listening every day, and seeking out new resources to share that will help us to understand better how we can address this important topic in our subject...
...First of all, what does "decolonisation" mean?

This is a good read from @ConversationEDU to give a broad overview.

"Decolonisation is now used to talk about restorative justice through cultural, psychological and economic freedom."…

Going to share my #dayofscience as a new #academicmama:

Buckle up. Because it's probably actually not that exciting. But it's what I do as a 6th year grad student in nuclear engineering.

2 am- woke up to feed my 5 month old and rock her back to sleep, finally going back to sleep at 3 am in hopes of salvaging some restful sleep (after all, I need to use my brain today!).

5:45 am- guess we're up for the day! (Yay baby alarm clocks)


After getting baby ready, off to daycare, myself ready, and lunches packed, I'm finally out the door at 9:30 am with a half dead brain. Time to grab a donut and catch up with other @AtomicBadger4 students (a weekly Wednesday ritual).

Ok, #dayofscience break time! Let’s talk about research and throwing rocks down hills.

Here’s Carleton undergrad Sara Wall helping me drop 600 lbs of rocks and collect photogrammetry data in the Oregon Coast Range last year.

Why? First, a little backstory...
When geomorphologists predict how landscapes will erode and evolve, we’re usually averaging over pretty long timescales (>1000s of years) and large areas (>100s of square miles). The equations and models we use are good at capturing changes at these scales!
But if you zoom in to smaller scales, many of the natural processes that move sediment and cause erosion—like tree throw!—are actually pretty irregular and some just aren’t described accurately by the physics in our model frameworks.

Making a twitter list of physical, natural and social scientists who do climate - now over 1,400 strong! - has been an interesting social experiment. Here is the list, and what I've learned!…
1/ I thought I knew most of the people doing some type of science on twitter - and I was WRONG! I was only following about 1/5 of the list before I made it, and I still find more new faces and names every day.
2/ The vast majority of us on twitter are the younger crowd - doctoral students, postdocs, assistant professors. We start to tail off on the associate level and only a few very senior folks are here (but it's fun to see them!).
