Researchers long ago predicted that the 1987 Montreal Protocol, banning ozone-depleting gases, would reverse a worrisome trend in Southern Hemisphere winds. A new study shows they were right.

Earth Institute researchers are in the field studying the dynamics of the planet on every continent and every ocean. Here is a list of projects.
A study finds that ozone-depleting substances caused about a third of all global warming from 1955 to 2005, and half of Arctic warming and sea ice loss during that period.
A small bay in Antarctica has been named after biological oceanographer Hugh Ducklow to celebrate his contributions to Antarctic research.
Pierre Dutrieux, a Lamont-Doherty oceanographer and 2019 Climate and Life Fellow, discusses his Antarctic research and what the new IPCC report says about sea level rise.
A new study shows, for the first time, evidence of a link between human-caused global warming and melting of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet.
A new study reveals how local factors influence the Ross Ice Shelf’s stability, refining predictions of how it will change and influence sea rise in the future.
A new book paints a daunting and detailed picture of earth’s natural ice under threat, and explains why what happens in the Arctic doesn’t stay in the Arctic.
A team of scientists working in Antarctica faces a host of new challenges.
Scientists are sailing to remote areas of the Southern Ocean to drill cores from the bottom that they hope will contain clues to past rapid changes in the Antarctic ice, and how it may react to warming climate today.
