An Interactive Map of Scientific Fieldwork

Field work guide map, Earth Institute, Lamont-Doherrt Earth Observatory

Earth Institute scientists explore how the physical world works on every continent — over and under the ice in the arctic, in the remotest regions of Antarctica, in the grasslands of Mongolia and forests of Eastern Turkey, from volcanoes in Patagonia and subduction zones in Papua New Guinea to the streets of New York City.

Take a look at our new interactive map, which pinpoints research around the world. Using the satellite view, zoom in to have a closer look at the landscape. Click on the blue markers to read about what’s going on, and find links to research blogs, scientific reports and more detail about the work. Use the map’s features to slide north and south to see more projects in the arctic and Antarctic.

The communications staff at the Earth Institute and the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory will update the map regularly as new projects come up. For a more detailed look at the projects, read the “Guide to Upcoming Scientific Fieldwork” on State of the Planet.

Recent record-breaking heat waves have affected communities across the world. The Extreme Heat Workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners to advance the state of knowledge, identify community needs, and develop a framework for evaluating risks with a focus on climate justice.
