Greenland’s vast ice sheet is in the grip of a dramatic “feedback loop” where the surface has been getting darker and less reflective of the sun, helping accelerate the melting of ice and fuelling sea level rises, new research led by Lamont's Marco Tedesco has found.
A new study led by Lamont's Ben Cook finds that the drought that began in 1998 in the Levant is probably the region's worst in 900 years.
Satellite data and modeling reveal a trend toward coarser-grained, more-energy-absorbent snow on Greenland, as a new paper by Lamont's Marco Tedesco explains.
A new study led by Lamont's Marco Tedesco finds that the reflectivity, or albedo, of Greenland’s ice sheet could decrease by as much as 10 percent by the end of the century, potentially leading to significant sea-level rise.
The BBC talks with Lamont's Bob Newton about the Billion Oyster Project, an effort to bring oysters back to New York harbor.
