Atmospheric scientist Yutian Wu received funding from the Center for Climate and Life to investigate whether the ongoing, rapid decline of sea ice cover in the Arctic promotes extreme weather over North America.
An atmospheric scientist seeking to understand how the rapid decline of Arctic sea ice will impact North American weather extremes is the Center’s newest Fellow.
A reporter from National Geographic joined paleoclimatologist Billy D’Andrea and his colleagues for an expedition to gather vital climate data in the Norwegian Arctic.
A video filmed by Lamont marine biologist Andy Juhl reveals mature jellyfish under the Arctic sea ice, where they aren’t supposed to be.
Billy D’Andrea’s research on the experiences of the Vikings may provide a kind of object lesson on how changing climate can affect civilizations.
Billy D’Andrea is investigating the relationship between environmental change and characteristics of early settlements in Arctic Norway.
The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation announced a $3.7 million grant to Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory for research on changing patterns of sea ice in the Alaskan Arctic.
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?
Ecosystem ecologist Natalie Boelman is studying the effects of climate change on the relationships among migratory songbirds, plants and insects in Alaska.
An expedition to the Canadian Arctic and west coast of Greenland is a moving and motivating experience for leading climate scientist Maureen Raymo.
As global temperatures rise, knowing just how far Greenland’s ice sheet shrank in the past could help scientists predict sea level rise in the future.
