MY ACADEMIC RESEARCH

As journalist, editor and science writer I provide content and consultancy, as well as publishing the work of others and mine. See links to left. My specialty is science, technology, non- and pre-clinical biomedicine, public health, their policy and politics. Customers/clients include WHO, UNESCO, ESA, EUMETSAT, international science, and trade press, encyclopaedias and the London Science Museum (2013).


I was a member of the National Union of Journalists until 6 July, 2014, when I resigned over policy unconnected with having run in 2011/12 as DGSNUJ (click here). As CIoJ member I seek no influence over NUJ policy.

History of EUMETSAT

Read, for example, the first official history of EUMETSAT, written by me under contract as the organisation's history consultant and author, with privileged access to their confidential archives.

In this book I explore the emergence of the IGO from the European Space Agency, and its adoption of climate monitoring within a rewritten international convention. Establishing facilities around Europe for key meteorological tasks was critical to the political strength of the IGO, which is responsible for Europe's weather satellites and climate monitoring.

GEOLOGICAL AGES.
bya means billion years ago. EONS: Hadean (4.6 to 4 bya), Archaen (4.0 to 2.5 bya), Proterozoic (2.5 to 0.542 bya).

ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION.
The shortest wavelengths are gamma rays. The longest are radio waves, ranging from 100s to 10-thousand centimetres from peak to peak. The distance between peaks of gamma rays are billionths/millionths of centimetres. Between the two extremes lie X-rays, ultra violet, visible, infrared and microwaves.
