Scientist emphasizes importance of multi-level thinking

A new paper touches on a range of deep questions within and outside the atmospheric sciences, including insights into the nature of science itself, and of scientific understanding—what it means to understand a scientific problem in depth—and into the communication skills necessary to convey that understanding and to mediate collaboration across specialist disciplines. "On multi-level thinking and scientific understanding" appears in the October issue of Advances in Atmospheric Sciences.
