Projects and Initiatives
In summer 2008 we conducted the first multi-streamer Multi-Channel Seismic program of Lamont’s new national marine seismic facility, the R/V Langseth.
Our 4D seimic monitoring technique gives a volumetric 3D view of the drainage within each reservoir over time.
The U.S. National Science Foundation has agreed to support the development of a next-generation gravity map of Antarctica (ADGRAV - Antarctic Digital Gravity Synthesis).

Scientists from several nations are working together to launch a flagship program to explore a major mountain range buried by a large continental ice sheet and bounded by numerous subglacial lakes.
Our project will focus on the subduction zone off southern Alaska, which produces large and destructive earthquakes.
This project is the continued analysis of seismic data collected on a 4x4 km array of ocean bottom seismometers (OBSs) deployed at the Ridge 2000 Integrated Study Site at 9°50'N on the East Pacific Ri

Using geophysical instruments, GAMBIT will peal back more than 600 meters of ice to explore the last hidden mountain range on Earth.
A multidisciplinary team of scientists undertook a 20-day research cruise on the Research Vessel Endeavor to map the effects of the Haitian earthquake offshore.
The Center for River and Estuaries is an association of scientists from Columbia University that study various aspects of rivers and estuaries world wide including the distribution of sediments, th
The Ice Sheets at both poles are changing - shrinking at increasing rates - rates that are faster than was ever expected by scientists.
This project will develop an integrated ice imaging system capable of measuring in detail both the ice surface and the ice bed. TheicePod system will be installed and operated on New York Air National Guard LC-130 aircraft during routine and targeted missions across Antarctica and Greenland as a shared community research facility providing data to scientists and educators globally. The fundamental data sets produced by the icePod system are necessary to support the development of accurate ice sheet models to predict sea level rise. The icePod system will consist of a suite of imaging sensors mounted in an external pod carried on New York Air National Guard LC-130’s to map the surface and subsurface ice topography of ice sheets, ice streams and outlet glaciers.
