Observatory Technical and Innovation Center (OTIC)

While there has been tremendous progress in learning of the state and workings of our world, great discoveries await the innovative application of new technologies. Today we require more quantitative observations of the forces governing earth processes; we need to observe in more detail the spatial and temporal scales of variability, and we urgently must gather information of our changing environment. The Observatory Technical and Innovation Center (OTIC) is established to strengthen observation-based research at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory by increasing the Institutional capacity to design, develop, and utilize innovative field and laboratory instrumentation.
