Earth and Environmental Sciences

Maya Tolstoy, a geophysicist at Lamont-Doherty, discusses seafloor earthquakes and evolving techniques for studying them in this TED talk given earlier this year in Geneva, at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. Over her career, Tolstoy has participated in 30 research expeditions to explore Earth’s changing undersea landscape. Tolstoy was featured in James Cameron’s 2005 documentary, Aliens of the Deep, and been a finalist in NASA's astronaut program.
