It’s not unusual for ice shelves to calve, many in the climate community fear that the breaking of Larsen C may be a signal of other events to come.
The Center has awarded nearly $1 million to four scientists whose research will improve understanding of how climate change impacts the essentials of human sustainability.
Once scientists could only observe Earth from above by using manned aircraft or satellites. Today they’re using drones to expand their research as never before.
Last winter, reporters from The New York Times joined Lamont scientists as they flew their mission of discovery over Antarctica.

In the far north, climate is warming two to three times faster than the global average. How will these changes affect tundra and boreal forests?
Figuring out how far sea level rose during past warm periods in Earth’s history starts with a walk on the beach, a keen eye for evidence of ancient shorelines, and a highly accurate GPS system.
Lamont scientists have developed ways to relatively quickly turn carbon dioxide captured from power plants to a solid for long-term storage.
