Lamont-Doherty scientist Klaus Jacob discusses climate adaptation strategies for New York.
Discussion of a study by Lamont-Doherty scientists Sloan Coats and Jason Smerdon that found that climate change models are unable to reproduce megadroughts of the past.

Simulations identify past megadroughts, but at wrong times. Lamont-Doherty scientists Sloan Coats and Jason Smerdon quoted.
The drought of 2012 was more about unusual weather patterns than global warming, says a study co-authored by Lamont-Doherty scientist Richard Seager.
Lamont-Doherty scientist Roger Anderson argues in favor of requiring utilities to put power lines underground.
The Great Plains summer drought of 2012 was more intense than the Dust Bowl era, and largely natural in origin, a report found. Report coauthor Richard Seager, a scientist at Lamont, comments.
Scientists are looking for shells on beaches along the East Coast, from near Washington, D.C. to Orlando, Fla. These are not ordinary shells on today's beaches, but the surf line of the Pliocene, about 3 million years ago. "I wish I could take people that question the significance of sea level rise out in the field with me," says Lamont-Doherty scientist Maureen E. Raymo.
More people than ever are living and cities, a trend that Lamont-Doherty scientist Chris Small is studying via satellite images of nighttime skies lit up by artificial lighting.
More coverage of induced-earthquake study in Geology co-authored by Lamont scientists Heather Savage and Geoff Abers.
Scientists have found evidence that wastewater injection induced a record-setting quake in Oklahoma two years ago. How big can a man-made earthquake get, and will we see more of them in the future? Lamont-Doherty scientist Geoff Abers comments.
“There are many things that could be done that are not being done,” said Lamont-Doherty scientist Mark Cane. “I have no doubts that there are at least some technical solutions to these problems.”
Lamont-Doherty researchers Robin Bell and Nick Frearson and education coordinator Margie Turrin discuss their new "IcePod," a tool able to study glacier dynamics from the wing of an airplane.
Ways to save water? "Tear out your lawn," says Lamont-Doherty climate modeler Mark Cane.
A damaging earthquake in central Oklahoma two years ago most likely resulted from the pumping of wastewater from oil production into deep wells, according to a new study coauthored by Lamont-Doherty scientists Heather Savage and Geoff Abers.
Lamont-Doherty scientists Andrew Juhl and Timothy Creyts explain what may have caused mysterious melt circles on a frozen pond in upstate New York.
A study in Geology by Lamont-Doherty scientists Heather Savage and Geoff Abers links wastewater disposal wells in Oklahoma to a series of earthquakes. In Ohio, Lamont-Doherty scientist John Armbruster made a similar connection between a spate of earthquakes and wastewater injection underground.
Scientists can now quickly assess characteristics of a landslide soon after slopes fail, based on its seismic signature. The technique is discussed in a new study in Science co-authored by Lamont-Doherty scientists Goran Ekstrom and Colin Stark.
Scientists have linked Oklahoma’s biggest recorded earthquake to the disposal of wastewater from oil production, adding to evidence that may lead to greater regulation of hydraulic fracturing for oil and gas. “There’s not a magic bullet,” said Lamont-Doherty scientist Heather Savage, co-author of a study in Geology reporting the findings. “But if we have more monitoring capabilities, we can watch these things, and catch all the precursor events.”
