If coral reefs continue to degrade, waves on coastlines may substantially increase, leading to greater coastal erosion.

In the final push, we split into multiple teams, and caught up and completed all the seismometer installations on time.
One of the most rapidly changing glaciers in the world shows us that once climate change triggers retreat, glacial mechanics can make melting a whole lot worse.
Helping Jim’s team, I assisted in installing stations and scouting locations. While some stations go quickly, others took multiple trips to find a good site. Time is growing short for getting all the seismometer installations done on time.
Soil naturally absorbs a huge amount of carbon. Some scientists think we can use it to our advantage in the fight against global warming.
In a new study, researchers have mapped out a large variety of discarded pharmaceuticals dissolved throughout the Hudson River. They say that in some places, levels may be high enough to potentially affect aquatic life.
As we finished scouting and installing the GPS stations, we started to assist the seismology team in getting permission to install there instruments in Tea Estates.
We drove through the hills of Sylhet passed rice fields and tea plantations, and through woods looking for appropriate spots to install our GPS systems.
On every continent and every ocean, Earth Institute researchers are studying climate, geology, natural hazards, ecology and more. Here is a list of projects in rough chronological order.
