Training grounds for climate scientists


Thanks for a great profile of Patrick Gonzalez, National Park Service climate scientist (“Climate change scientist walks the walk,” HCN, 8/22/16). His story is a good walk all the way. Let me add that his Ph.D. was actually earned through the Energy and Resources Group at UC Berkeley, where a good number of climate scientists with an emphasis on ecology have been trained.
