The improved climate predictions can help provide increased resilience to sea level rise, superstorms, extreme temperature events, and recurrent drought.
Cook, a Climate and Life Fellow and a co-founder of the Lamont Tree Ring Lab, explains how he uses tree rings to study past climate and advance understanding of drought.
Researchers report a sharp drop in salinity in the North Atlantic Ocean over the last decade, providing the most detailed look yet at changing ocean conditions in the region.
Citizen scientists are invited to contribute to a project led by Marco Tedesco, who’s investigating the properties of snow in the eastern U.S. and how that snow is changing over time.
On January 31 at 1:00 p.m. EST, Lamont’s Hugh Ducklow and his colleagues will use the National Science Foundation Twitter account to discuss their research on Antarctic ecology.
The better climate models become, the harder it is to use them. A team of Columbia scientists and their colleagues are working to fix that.
Global warming-related rises in winter temperatures could significantly extend the range of one of the world’s most aggressive tree-killing insects.
A new study found that the northeastern U.S. is at particular risk for physical and economic effects of climate hazards.
David Goldberg and Peter Kelemen discuss carbon capture and storage, and how it can make the energy sector, and society, more resilient to climate change.
Rising temperatures due to global warming will make it harder for many aircraft around the world to take off in coming decades, says a new study.
Research by geophysicist Christine McCarthy reveals how glaciers move, what makes them speed up, and how they are contributing to sea level rise as the climate warms.
During the last glacial period, there were lakes under Antarctica’s ice sheet, which may have accelerated the retreat of glaciers in the past.
Last winter, reporters from The New York Times joined Lamont scientists as they flew their mission of discovery over Antarctica.
New research offers the first comprehensive model for understanding differences in sea level rise along North America’s East Coast.
On May 2, 2017, Lamont-Doherty and the Tamer Center for Social Enterprise at Columbia Business School co-host a Social Enterprise Leadership Forum.
