Columbia Researchers have predicted that current El Niño conditions are sufficient to have major consequences in many parts of the world this fall and winter, and are playing a leading role in alerting policy makers and the general public. Explore the breadth and depth of an El Niño and the cutting-edge research at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.

Open House is organized by the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, the International Research Institute for Climate Prediction, the Center for International Earth Science Information Network and the Center for Environmental Research and Conservation—research units of The Earth Institute at Columbia University.
