#62: Dr. Kenneth Libbrecht – Exploring the Fascinating World of Snowflake Physics – Nature's Archive
This week’s episode is not a traditional interview episode, but rather more of an update. But I still tried to pack some great nature content in it. Regular episodes return in two weeks,
So what’s on tap today? I have some fascinating updates and topics that I picked up from two nature conferences I attended over the last two weeks. This includes:
- Complexities of nitrogen deposition and their impacts on land and water
- Wildfire ecology including using burn scars to measure fire history
- DNA Barcoding revealing raptor prey
- Summaries of the CNPS and California Naturalist conferences
- Preview of upcoming podcast guests
As I said, we’ll be back to normal interview episodes in two weeks, with Allen Fish of the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory talking raptor migrations and raptor biology, counting, and banding. And I have some other wonderful guests with interviews in various stages of production, covering spiders, slime molds, and hydrology and water management.
I also have a question for you all. What would you think if I changed to a “seasonal” release schedule? I explain my thought process in the episode, but the short story is I think I can increase my annual episodes released from 26 to 30 while providing more flexibility for scheduling challenges and I inevitably run into.
Did you have a question that I didn’t ask? Let me know at email@example.com, and I’ll try to get an answer! I’ll add these Q&As to my monthly newsletter, so if you aren’t already subscribed, go here. I promise, no spam. I share the latest news from the world of Nature’s Archive, as well as pointers to new naturalist finds that have crossed my radar, like podcasts, books, websites, and more.
