about

Scientific research on climate change has given rise to a variety of images which often make the invisible visible. They influence political processes but also the general perception of global weather events. As its subject the book takes the visual aspect of the climate discourse, treated here in sixteen interdisciplinary case studies. At its heart are images which depict the climate and climate change in very different ways - landscape photography, press photos, maps and diagrams used in climate science and climate skeptical media, but also artworks and the visual strategies of environmental activism. By this, the book gives insights into the crucial roles images play in shaping climate change communication.

Birgit Schneider (PhD in cultural studies) is postdoc fellow at the Institute for Arts and Media at University of Potsdam, Germany. Thomas Nocke (PhD in computer science) investigates visualization methods for climate data and visual climate knowledge communication at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, Germany.
