Diego Fdez-Sevilla Filling In Filling Out Framework and Timeline

Every idea acquires a broader meaning when it gets contextualised in a Framework and Timeline. Therefore I have created in this blog a page containing an index with all the titles published and their links to its origin, in chronological order, and in two columns, Conceptual framework and Research.

Conceptual Framework: A theoretical structure of assumptions, principles, and rules that holds together the ideas comprising a broad concept.

The aim is to facilitate navigation in the evolution of concepts and assessments expressed through the whole line of research published in this blog. The objective pursued is to highlight the value of continuity and interconnectivity between publications, ideas and concepts, between lapses of time (earliest and those more recent) and between disciplines.

I will try to keep updated this page with the new publications. You can access this page looking among the categories found at the top menu of the blog as “Framework and Timeline” and also following this link.

I have also created a file in PDF format  with the Timeline and Framework behind the research that I have generated and published in this blog between Oct 2013 and June 2016. The file contains the titles and links to each publication in this period (link also here) so you can download the file and use the links to access any specific publication. With an internet connection you can use the pdf file to read my blog as a book following the chapters in chronological order.

If you are not familiar with the research that I publish in this blog, more information can be found in the  page”About”.

There are two posts which incorporate some of the most relevant topics and points of view applied in the line of research that I try to present in this blog. And both are part of the dossier in pdf format:

Research From The Bench

As an informative summary of some relevant situations influencing the timeline of this research a small portion of what it has been published in previous posts on Atmospheric Dynamics and Climatic Drifts can be found in the following publication:

At the beginning back in Oct 2013, in order to expose my assessments to public review by a multidisciplinary audience, I started sharing my publications in several groups at LinkeIn like AGU, NOAA, etc… Furthermore, in 2014 I developed a theory over atmospheric dynamics in a changing environment and sent few emails asking for feedback to relevant scientists in the field.

My query was simple, I just wanted to have feedback on the assessment that I presented in these two posts presenting my arguments:

Posts explaining the theory “Facing a decrease in the differential gradients of energy in Atmospheric Circulation”.

“What I am trying to highlight in my theory are the possible mechanisms which would explain: changes in albedo which support Arctic Amplification, early snowfalls in central Asia, Arctic ice cover meltdown and oceanic increases in salinity and ultimately, the origin of atmospheric blocking patterns and the pause in T raise unified in single principle: Increasing conc. of CO2 and water vapour induce a decrease in the differential gradients of energy in the global atmospheric circulation, not only the Arctic.

I am looking at the implications of having the global circulation absorbing constant increases in atm CO2 inducing Water vapour to be spread over the global atmospheric circulation. In my approach, instead of looking at what happens in the Arctic as the origin of a chain reaction, I look at what happens in the Arctic just as a side effect (with its own implications) of a more wide process resultant from a reduction between the differential  gradients of energy driving compartmentalization and weather patterns in the global atmospheric circulation, being water vapour the carrier of the energy being homogeneously dispersed all over the atmosphere.”

On 17th of December 2014, Jennifer Francis sent her answer to me (full email exchange here):

“The topic you’ve written about is extremely complicated and many of your statements have not yet been verified by peer-reviewed research. It is an exciting and active new direction in research, though, so I encourage you to pursue it. To get funding or a job in this field, however, will require a deeper understanding of the state of the research, knowledge of atmospheric dynamics (not just suggestive examples and anecdotal evidence), and statements supported by published (or your own) analysis.”

As Jennifer pointed out, in November 2014, “many of my statements had not yet been verified by peer-reviewed research.” Which means that my assessments analyse unsettled and unprecedented science.

Those words represent an assessment over my work which would come from a peer reviewer  judging the suitability of publishing my research in scientific journals. So if you wonder why I have not published my work on scientific journals, you have the answer.

Is it possible to publish an idea original since due to its originality can not be verified by peer-reviewed research?

Therefore, since 2014, I have not been able to rely on comparing my research with other’s, and, I have had to keep constantly observing and analysing how the atmospheric developments corroborate the accuracy of my assessments.

Strangely enough, my research is under the radar for major controversy and, besides having visits from research institutions, and papers raising following paths previously pointed out in some of my publications (ref1, ref2 and ref3) it lacks negative feedback. The majority of the feedback obtained comes from members at LinkedIn to whom I am really grateful for their support. Why there has not been more feedback from the visits arriving and those aware of my work? I can not answer.

I wrote it down in my blog and I shared it in my profile in and at several groups in LinkedIn.

In the exchange of emails with Jennifer Francis asking for feedback she pointed me out that “there were no peer reviewed publications at the time available to verify my assessments so I should offer my own data and analyses“. Accordingly, in February 2015 I wrote a follow-up piece revisiting and contrasting my theory with the events occurred throughout the winter 2014-15.

It is being more challenging than I expected to find feedback on it when members at specialised groups like AGU and NOAA kept silent without agreement or disagreement.

In the last year 2016 it has been refreshing and encouraging to finally start finding feedback and positive comments. Reaching same conclusions from different points of view is what strengthens the validity of any approach to discuss and implement new ideas in atmospheric and climatic assessments.

When it is claimed that there is an absence of ideas exploring connections between data, atmospheric dynamics and climatic shifts, I am just trying to offer those connections which I have found on my research and hours of analyses (follow this link to see those posts with DOI published at ResearchGate and this link with the Timeline and Framework of all publications in this blog)

It is evident that in today’s time, information and communication are key elements playing a big role in the evolution of our societies. But also, it has allowed to become a frequent situation to use access to information and communication as a form of segregation. Official and unofficial channels (social media) are full of clashes between postures and agendas, fighting to be big players in the “lead teams”, and keeping others doing research from the bench.

Comment Diego Fdez-Sevilla PhD WordPress

Science evolve in a timeline, and every concept and idea comes at a particular time from particular reasons. The language required to make ideas suitable for different formats usually takes the most of the time afterwards.

I might reach ideas without the required language suitable to make it “scientific appealing” for some, but the origin of my ideas can easily be found through my posts and comments. and you will easily find it in the conceptual framework and timeline followed in my research.

This constant following-up work has been shared throughout the publications found in this blog, including the most relevant at researchgate.

(updated 25 Aug 2016 with links to LinkedIn groups)

The aim of publishing my work openly is to allow for it to be exposed for an open review. So any constructive feedback is welcome. After a period of time of at least a month from the publishing date on this blog and at LinkedIn, if no comments are found discussing the value of the piece published I then publish it at ResearchGate generating a DOI for posterior references.

In order to protect my intellectual rights, more assessment in depth and the statistical and numerical analyses that I have performed to support my arguments can be discussed at my email: d.fdezsevilla(at)

The performance of my work as independent researcher, with no institutional and economic support, is limited by my lack of access to resources and economic stability. So far what I have published in this blog is what I have been able to offer with those limitations.

If you find that my work is worthy to be acknowledged, share your thoughts openly and publicly because by sharing public acknowledging over the value of my work is what will overcome the limitations of my cv in order to find the attention from those able to allow me access to a job position or resources to increase the functionality of my research.

PerspectiveSince October 2013 I have been studying the behaviour of the Polar Jet Stream and the weather events associated as well as the implications derived into atmospheric dynamics and environmental synergies.

Many of the atmospheric configurations and weather and climate events we see these days are very similar with the progression followed since 2013. Please take a look at posts addressing those events from previous publications in this blog or look at the categories in the top menu. Also at research-gate. Feedback is always welcomed either in this blog or at my email (d.fdezsevilla(at) All my work is part of my Intellectual Portfolio, registered under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License, license and it is being implemented at my profile in researchgate. I will fight for its recognition in case of misuse.

Bachelor in General Biology, Masters degree "Licenciado" in Environmental Sciences (2001, Spain). PhD in Aerobiology (2007, UK). Lived, acquired training and worked in Spain, UK, Germany and Poland. I have shared the outcome from my work previous to 2013 as scientific speaker in events held in those countries as well as in Switzerland and Finland. After 12 years performing research and working in institutions linked with environmental research and management, in 2013 I found myself in a period of transition searching for a new position or funding to support my own line of research. In the current competitive scenario, in order to demonstrate my capacities instead of just moving my cv waiting for my next opportunity to arrive, I decided to invest my energy and time in opening my own line of research sharing it in this blog. In March 2017 the budget reserved for this project has ended and its weekly basis time frame discontinued until new forms of economic and/or institutional support are incorporated into the project. The value of the data and the original nature of the research presented in this platform and at LinkedIn has proved to be worthy of consideration by the scientific community as well as for publication in scientific journals. However, without a position as member of an institution, it becomes very challenging to be published.

Furthermore, I try to break the barrier that academic publications very often offer isolating scientific findings from the general public. In that way I address those topics which I am familiar with, thanks to my training in environmental research, making them available throughout my posts.
