Climate Change and the Future of Mono Lake

Understanding the climate history of California’s Mono Lake will help scientists project what might happen as the world warms up. This is no esoteric question for Los Angeles, which depends in part on Mono Lake’s watershed for drinking water, green lawns, agriculture and industry.

Lamont Scientists on the Map

Since 1949, Lamont-Doherty scientists have mapped the planet to gain insight into its history and evolution. In honor of these researchers’ accomplishments, many natural features bear their names, from faults on the seafloor to icy islands off Antarctica. Explore our new map to learn about these locations and the scientists for which they’re named.

Our Gratitude

Thanks to the generosity of our alumni, friends and staff, Lamont-Doherty successfully met a fundraising challenge made by the Lenfest Foundation to match up to $250,000 in donations for the creation of a conference room in the Gary C. Comer Geochemistry Building. The room will be named for climate scientist Wally Broecker and will benefit future generations of young researchers who, inspired by extraordinary scientists like Wally, will answer key questions in Earth science.

New Year, New Communications

In December, our home page received a face-lift, creating a more user-friendly experience for new and returning users. We also redesigned this e-newsletter and will send it more frequently to better communicate the excitement of our research and education endeavors. We hope you’ll investigate our new home page and share our e-newsletter with your friends and colleagues.
