Lamont climate scientist Mark Cane discusses why global warming appears to have stalled since 1998.
The U.S. Geological Survey may know within two months whether the earthquakes around Azle, Texas, can be linked to natural gas drilling activity. Research by Lamont's Won-Young Kim and John Armbruster on induced earthquakes in Ohio discussed.
Global warming is as real and serious as ever, writes Lamont-Doherty scientist Adam Sobel in this op-ed, it's just exceedingly gradual compared with the dramatic temperature swings that are still part of living in midlatitudes in winter.
Commentary from Kerstin Lehnert, who heads the Integrated Earth Data Systems facility based at Lamont, and seismologist Paul Richards.
A group of scientists from Columbia University model more than just Earth's climate in an all-new calendar for 2014, with each month devoted to the issues around climate change that they study.
Columbia University showcases the planet's hottest" climate science and the people behind it.
"Haiyan is precisely the kind of storm that we expect to become more frequent due to climate change,” Lamont-Doherty scientist Adam Sobel tells the Abu Dhabi paper, The National.
Climate scientists at Lamont-Doherty Eare featured in a 2014 Climate Models calendar, modeling in the traditional sense to highlight their climate modeling.
A piece of Halley's comet may have intercepted Earth's orbit in A.D. 536, cooling the planet with the dust it blasted into the atmosphere, says new research by Lamont-Doherty scientist Dallas Abbott.
A new study indicates that the supervolcano beneath Yellowstone National Park is far larger than scientists previously believed. Lamont-Doherty postdoctoral researcher David Ferguson explains what the findings mean.
Lamont-Doherty scientist Robin Bell will lead a U.S. team of researchers in mapping one of the least explored regions of Antarctica - the East Antarctic Ice Sheet's Recovery Catchment.
Lamont-Doherty researcher Nina Keul's work to measure changing ocean chemistry by analyzing the shells of tiny marine creatures known as pteropods is discussed.
The drought that has been afflicting most of the Western states for the past 13 years could be a multi-decade dry spell, says Lamont-Doherty scientist Edward Cook.
Tree Rings Reveal History of History-Changing Mexican Droughts - http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=tree-rings-reveal-mexican-drought-history
Lamont-Doherty scientist Richard Seager comments on a new tree-ring study linking prolonged droughts in Central America to the fall of the ancient Toltec and Aztec civilizations.
This week, we are launching a test of “IceTracker”—a tool that allows users to see the trajectories of Arctic sea ice forward or backward from any day between 1981 and 2012, as well as sea-ice speed, air temperature, water depth and the age of the sea ice.
Learn about improving communication of and planning for natural hazards from a social science perspective at AGU2013.
The Marcus G. Langseth, a research vessel operated by Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, traverses the world’s oceans conducting marine seismic studies that contribute to new understanding of Earth systems. The ship typically spends half the year or more on research expeditions led by Lamont-Doherty scientists and colleagues from other research institutes. Mentions of cruises may conjure up [...]
Scientists from Columbia University’s Earth Institute will present important research results and special events at the Dec. 9-13 San Francisco meeting of the American Geophysical Union, the world’s largest gathering of earth and space scientists. Here is a guide in rough chronological order.
Four scientists and one PhD student from the International Research Institute for Climate and Society are attending the 2013 American Geophysical Union's Fall Meeting. Below are links to Q&As with each of the presenters and the schedule of their posters and presentations.
