The goal of this talk is to share the value of integrating social, behavioral, and economic sciences (SBES) into physical science work. The talk will explore different areas of meteorology and how SBES integration may transform the project or output. Interdisciplinary work is very rewarding, and also challenging! The talk will provide some best practices on what physical scientists can do to foster interdisciplinary efforts especially with SBES researchers.
