Research videos: Exploring „storylines“ in Climate Science

23. April 2024

In the dynamic landscape of Climate Science, the concept of „storylines“ has emerged as a crucial framework for understanding and communicating complex data and findings. Therefore, research on this topic is playing an important role in the transmission of knowledge and many scientists are curious about how to incorporate them. One of those scientists is Eulàlia Baulenas, a researcher from the Barcelona Supercomputing Center in Spain and a project partner of the nextGEMS project. In a recent video analysis she explains the scientific publication „Assembling the climate story: use of storyline approaches in climate-related science“, a study developed by a team of which she was an integral member, through a visual and explanatory format.

Baulenas clarifies the multifaceted nature of storylines and their significance across various disciplines. Through a semi-systematic literature review, she uncovers three primary approaches to utilizing storylines: the discourse analytical approach, the story and simulation approach, and physical climate storylines. Each approach offers unique perspectives and methodologies, contributing to a more profound understanding of climate-related phenomena.

One notable aspect highlighted by Baulenas is the importance of interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity in crafting effective storylines. By drawing insights from diverse fields, researchers can enrich their narratives and offer comprehensive interpretations of Climate Science data. This research not only sheds light on existing practices but also encourages scholars to explore alternative approaches to storytelling in the field. As we continue to navigate the complexities of Climate Change, embracing diverse perspectives and innovative storytelling techniques will be instrumental in fostering collaboration and driving meaningful progress in the field.
