Oral history interview with Stephen Volz


“As I've come to work in Earth science, what I find even more and more true is that all the
phenomena are interconnected, so you can't just suppress them. You have to tease them out
and understand them so that you see how they contribute. […] For many years, you studied
clouds or winds or aerosols or one phenomenon or another, and now what you hear a lot of is
the air-ocean interface. I can't understand the atmosphere unless I understand what's
happening in the ocean. […] It's the connection of all of those which is the real beauty and
richness of the phenomena we're observing.”
