ISTPP Researchers Publish Work Based on NOAA Research Grants

May 16, 2010

A multi-year, multi-million dollar project conducted by the Institute for Science, Technology and Public Policy and funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has resulted in several recent and forthcoming publications in peer-reviewed journals by ISTPP researchers.

The first is an article forthcoming in the journal Climatic Change: “Climate Change: A Profile of U.S. Climate Scientists’ Perspectives.” Authors are Dr. Stacey Rosenberg, former ISTPP post-doctoral researcher, now assistant professor of politics and environmental studies at SUNY-Potsdam; ISTPP director, Dr. Arnold Vedlitz; Dr. Deborah Cowman, former ISTPP assistant research scientist, now director of the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History; and Dr. Sammy Zahran, former ISTPP post-doctoral researcher, now associate professor of sociology at Colorado State University.

The second article based on NOAA-funded research is “Explaining Media and Congressional Attention to Global Climate Change, 1969-2005: An Empirical Test of Agenda Setting Theory,” forthcoming in Political Research Quarterly. Written by ISTPP associate research scientists, Dr. Xinsheng Liu and Dr. Eric Lindquist, and ISTPP director, Dr. Arnold Vedlitz, this article examines how climate problem indicators, high-profile international events, and climate science feedback influence media and congressional attention to global warming and climate change.

Another article resulting from the NOAA research is “Examining Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Behaviors among State and Local Public Sector Organizations in the United States,” forthcoming in the journal Local Environment. This piece was written by ISTPP researchers Dr. Eric Lindquist and Dr. Arnold Vedlitz, in collaboration with Dr. Sam Brody and Dr. Himanshu Grover of the Department of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning.
