Hudson River Sewage Spills Breed Illness, Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria - (Rockland, NY) Journal News
Water quality study coauthored by Lamont's Andrew Juhl and Gregory O'Mullan cited.
Two experiments test viability of sequestering emissions in porous layers of hard rock. Lamont-Doherty scientists Juerg Matter and David Goldberg comment.
"Because Mercury and Saturn are such different outcomes of planetary formation and evolution, these two images also highlight what is special about Earth," said Lamont-Doherty director Sean Solomon, principal investigator of NASA's MESSENGER mission to Mercury. "There's no place like home."
In a new study in Nature Geoscience, Lamont-Doherty scientist Trevor Williams and colleagues estimate that melting of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet during the Pliocene three million to five million years ago contributed to about half of the 70 feet of sea level rise during that time.
Researchers have found antibiotic-resistant strains of disease-causing bacteria living in some near-shore segments of the Hudson River from the Tappan Zee Bridge to lower Manhattan, largely connected with raw sewage dumped into the river.
A new study by Lamont's Andrew Juhl and Gregory O'Mullan finds the Hudson River polluted with high levels of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
In a new study, Lamont's Andrew Juhl and Gregory O'Mullan New York have found strains of bacteria resistant to common antibiotics -- including ampicillin and tetracycline -- in New York's Hudson River.
Nicholas van der Elst discusses new findings on induced earthquakes in the journal Science.

"The Atlantic and the Pacific were in a good state to promote drought in the 1950s," said Richard Seager, a scientist at Lamont-Doherty. "They've now gone back to the same phase. Because there is this background global warming signal, it is easier and easier to go past these temperature records, especially in the West."
Low-lying Bangladesh is prone to monsoon flooding and devastating earthquakes. Yet these powerful natural forces are little understood in the region. Lamont's Michael Steckler, Leonardo Seeber and Chris Small.
In today’s Academic Minute, Lamont-Doherty scientist Andrew Juhl explains why when it comes to pollution, the extremes are more important than the mean.
A technique co-developed by Lamont researcher Kevin Uno could combat the illegal trade of elephant ivory.
Lavas from the Afar Depression in Ethiopia, where three tectonic plates are spreading apart, have given scientists a new insight into how ocean basins form. "Afar is the best example we currently have of advanced continental rifting – where flowing magma is forcing its way upwards causing the continents to break apart." explains Lamont postdoctoral researcher David Ferguson.
“There’s some connection between humans and elephants that would be a really sad thing to lose,” says Lamont-Doherty postdoctoral researcher Kevin Uno.
A new technique for dating elephant ivory, described in a study led by Lamont's Kevin Uno, could help crackdown on poaching of African elephants.
Fallout from long-ago Cold War explosions is now a forensic tool in the illegal ivory trade. The tool is described in a study led by Lamont's Kevin Uno in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
