Honoring Professor Jim McCarthy

During February and March 2019, Jim McCarthy spoke about his scientific and professional interests, spanning the course of his career, in a series of conversations with HUCE Research Associate and multimedia producer, Alex Griswold. These interviews formed the raw material for the short video and a five-part audio podcast:

PART 1 (1970-1982) – Early Career and Development of a Cross-Disciplinary Approach to Oceanography


PART 2 (1982-1995) – Remote Sensing, the International Geosphere Biosphere Program, and Signs of Climate Change


PART 3 (1990-2004) – Climate Change Impacts: The IPCC, Arctic Council Report, and Union of Concerned Scientists


PART 4 – Taking on New Roles at Harvard:  Director of MCZ, Co-Faculty Dean of Pforzheimer House


PART 5 – Role in the Founding of the Harvard University Center for the Environment and in the Re-configuration of the Harvard Museums of Science and Culture; reflections on the future for students interested in environmental sciences


We hope you enjoy the podcasts and will join us in celebrating Jim’s many accomplishments.
