Jeff Kiehl is a senior scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research where he heads the Climate Change Research Section. He has published over 100 articles on topics including the climatic effects of greenhouse gases, stratospheric ozone depletion, and small particles. His most recent research has been on Earth’s deep past climates and what they can tell us about future climate change. He is currently developing research into Earth’s water cycle and climate change effects on biodiversity. He is also participating in projects to better communicate climate change science to the public.
Jeff returned to school in 2003 to earn a degree in psychology from Regis University. With this education he is currently researching the question of why we treat nature the way we do, and how humans value nature from a psychological and philosophical perspective.
Outside of Science: Jeff has combined his interest in climate change and as a Jungian psychologist by exploring the connections between Psyche and Nature in lectures and workshops around the country.
