I now have some of the presentations from the Santa Fe Conference posted on a web site.
The Conference was discussed on this previous thread.
Check out a good article on the conference written by Rob Nikolewski, a New Mexico journalist. Nikolewski interviewed Muller, myself, Ramaswamy, Monckton.
After talking to scientists and listening to their sometimes arcane presentations that often went over the heads of the unititiated, I reached some conclusions after the 5-day conference.
The website for the presentations is here. I managed to get 28 presentations (about a third of the total). I’ll highlight a few here, that are relevant to topics that we have been discussing and work ok as stand alone ppt presentations.
Pal Brekke: Does the Sun contribute to Climate Change? JC note: overview of a range of solar issues.
Anthony Davis: Cloud (and Aerosol) Remote Sensing: Thinking Outside the Photon State-Space Box JC note: overview of state of the art aerosol and cloud remote sensing techniques.
Mark Flanner: Arctic climate: Unique vulnerability and complex response to aerosols JC note: addresses the complexity of the radiation environment in the Arctic
Derek Lemoine: Formalizing uncertainty about climate feedbacks
