Robin Bell is a Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory polar scientist whose breakthrough research, fueled by passionate intellectual curiosity, has been critical to understanding our planet.
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.
A new study shows that even minor deterioration of ice shelves can instantaneously hasten the decline of ice hundreds of miles landward.
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.
The widespread presence of seasonally flowing streams signals that the ice may be more vulnerable to melting than previously thought.
23 million years ago, the Antarctic ice sheet was shrinking quickly. A new study by Lamont scientists sheds light on the cause of that ancient melt.
