    Article by Lubchenco and Karl in Physics Today — includes call for social science:
    “Intelligence, however, is only as valuable as society’s capacity to use it. Improving response to forecasts will require a weather-ready nation whose citizens, emergency managers, and businesses understand and value the forecast and warning services provided and use them to make informed decisions. Improving response will rely on social science research aimed at understanding how best to deliver timely, useable, credible information. Can people access and understand the information that NOAA provides? Do they respond in ways that protect themselves and their property whenever possible? With those questions in mind, let’s now focus on the key strategies and challenges for improving and more effectively using critical environmental intelligence.”
