Research by Center for Climate and Life Fellow Pierre Dutrieux will lead to greater understanding of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet’s future stability and associated sea level rise.
A new study finds that ocean absorption of CO2 rises and falls along with human activity and natural phenomena. The findings are important for understanding how much the oceans will offset future climate change.
Geoscientists estimate that a mountain slope could collapse into Prince William Sound within a year, and likely within 20 years, triggering devastating waves.
A committee has outlined what the U.S. National Science Foundation should focus on over the next decade.
Her research as a Ph.D. student at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory has yielded important information for air quality control efforts.
The study explains how friction alters the velocity of glaciers. It could have important implications for improving sea level rise projections.
Widely considered a screen against contamination, clay layers may actually enhance arsenic leakage into some aquifers, study finds.
In a new study, researchers propose a mechanism for how mega-canyons under northern Greenland’s ice sheet formed: from a series of catastrophic outburst floods that suddenly and repeatedly drained lakes of meltwater.
Rapid development in flood-prone zones during recent decades helped boost the amount of property exposed to the 2018 hurricane substantially, a new study says.
