Lamont director and planetary scientist Sean Solomon comments on the idea that Earth's moon came from Venus.
Drought prediction remains unreliable because we still don't fully understand the mechanisms underlying ENSO or other long-term natural variations that affect weather, says Lamont's Richard Seager.
Lamont researchers David Goldberg, Dennis Kent and Paul Olsen are overseeing the deep drilling into rock that underlies the New York City area to see if they could be used for storing carbon dioxide.
Coverage of study in PNAS by Lamont's Wallace Broecker and Aaron Putnam.
Lamont seismologist John Armbruster explains how a mud volcano likely created the island that suddenly appeared after a magnitude 7.7 earthquake struck western Pakistan on Tuesday.
Cores of rock pulled from under the Lamont-Doherty campus are providing a glimpse into a geological formation known as the Newark Basin. The scientists want to know whether the formation — or similar ones elsewhere — could be used to store carbon dioxide emissions from power plants and other industrial sources.
In a new study in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Lamont's Wallace Broecker and Aaron Putnam find a worrying similarity between the modern climate and one that existed 15,000 years ago, when Earth was emerging from the last ice age.
Research by Lamont's Alexander van Geen and Benjamin Bostick suggests that arsenic is leaching into the drinking-water aquifer that serves Hanoi, Vietnam.
The biblical floods in Colorado this week were both extensive and devastating. They were also expected. Lamont's Arthur Lerner-Lam and Richard Seager cited in this preview of what to expect in floods, droughts and earthquakes in the future.
Students at Poughkeepsie High School ask scientists at Lamont-Doherty in a live chat about their work measuring ice loss in Greenland.
Researchers struggle to project how fast, how high and how far the oceans will rise. Lamont-Doherty scientist Maureen Raymo explains what reconstructing sea level from 3 million years ago can tell us about what lies ahead.
New research by Lamont-Doherty scientist Michael Previdi shows that traditional IPCC models may be underestimating global warming by omitting slower feedbacks.
Lamont-Doherty geophysicist Roger Buck discusses evolving views of the continental spreading taking place in Ethiopia's Afar Rift.
We should be retreating from the shore, not developing structures that will only flood again, argues Lamont-Doherty natural disaster expert Klaus Jacob in this op-ed.
Lamont-Doherty scientist Adam Sobel discusses problems related to Hurricane Sandy response.
Arsenic has infiltrated an aquifer that provides water for the Vietnamese capital Hanoi, says a new study in Nature led by Lamont-Doherty scientist Alexander van Geen.
Lamont's Wally Broecker weighs in on the hypothesis that an extraterrestrial impact nearly 13,000 years ago briefly cooled the planet and killed off North America's mega-fauna.
Feature about Lamont-Doherty scientists Peter Kelemen and Juerg Matters work in Oman to study the potential for exposed mantle rocks to store excess CO2.
Lamont's Roger Anderson discusses the hurdles to installing self-contained electricity networks, or micro-grids, in NYC to make cites more storm-resilient.
Lamont's Chris Zappa explains how drones are helping to study climate change and sea-level rise in remote polar regions.
