Lamont scientists utilize a variety of observational and computational techniques to image and model the deep interior of the Earth, from crust to core.
SG&T scientists employ a broad spectrum of tools and techniques to develop a better understanding of the mechanics and dynamics of earthquakes and faulting. These techniques include labor
Geodynamics research in SG&T is focused on understanding the forces that drive deformation and tectonism in the solid Earth, and the role that rock rheology, physical state (solid or partially
Our faculty and staff engage in research projects that include the processes of continental deformation, fault growth, normal faulting, the origin of sedimentary layering patterns, Neoproterozoic Earth history,
Lamont-Doherty Cooperative Seismographic Network (LCSN) monitors earthquakes which occur primarily in the Eastern United States.
Continental margins are the Earth's principal loci for producing hydrocarbon and metal resources, for earthquake, landslide, volcanic and climatic hazards, and for
Earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, floods, drought, cyclones and other natural hazards have significant potential to affect human lives and society.
Our Ocean Bottom Seismology (OBS) Laboratory develops and operates cutting-edge instrumentation for measuring deformation of the ocean floor in a variety of experimental settings. One of our
