When it comes to how climate change influences rainfall, temperature may be only part of the puzzle. In a new study co-authored by Lamont's Mark Cane, scientists report that warming spurred by greenhouse gases causes less overall precipitation than similar warming caused by solar heating, such as what occurred hundreds of years ago.
New York officials have dismissed the threat of earthquakes from drilling activities as they develop state rules for shale gas drilling and hydraulic fracturing, but Lamont-Doherty seismologist Geoff Abers says that's a bad idea.
Compared to global warming caused by solar radiation, global warming caused by greenhouse gases results in less rainfall, a new study co-authored by Lamont-Doherty scientist Mark Cane suggests.
Replacing waterfront buildings with parks is one way cities can adapt to climate change, says Lamont-Doherty scientist Klaus Jacob.
In this latest in a series of profile on Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath, NY 1 visits with Lamont-Doherty scientist Klaus Jacob who warned for years of a storm like Sandy.
