Earth Institute Photos of Our Amazing Planet

In honor of Earth Day on April 22, the Earth Institute has a variety of great events and stories lined up for you throughout the entire month of April. Find out more here and here

During non-pandemic times, scientists and scholars within the Earth Institute work all over the planet — from the deepest oceans to the highest mountains — in order to understand natural processes, how humans are modifying them, and how we can live more sustainably. In the process, they often capture photos that showcase the beauty and wonder of this incredible planet. Below, you can click through a small sample of their photos, and learn a little bit about the research surrounding each one.

If you want to see more, check out the #ColumbiaBeautifulPlanet hashtag on Instagram and Twitter, where we’ll be sharing awe-inspiring photos throughout Earth Month. You can also use the hashtag to share your own.

To help advance the work of our scientists and experts working on our most pressing issues, please consider supporting the Earth Institute and Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory today. You can also learn more on our Earth Day website.
