In this amazing video from Ensia, University of Minnesota undergrad Daniel Crawford has created a way to communicate climate data through music. Using his cello and climate data collected by NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies, Crawford created a composition where each note corresponds to a year, and the pitch represents temperature.
“Climate scientists have a standard toolbox to communicate their data. What we’re trying to do is add another tool to that toolbox, another way to communicate these ideas to the people who might get more out of this than maps, graphs, and numbers.” –Daniel Crawford
