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 rarely seen phenomenon may not bode well for the future survival of the ice.
A Q&A with the geochemist, who plans to investigate a key climate interval millions of years ago.
As melting glaciers alter ecosystems in and around Antarctica, scientists study how sea squirts react.
Large numbers of icebergs that drifted unusually far from Antarctica before melting into ocean waters have been key to initiating ice ages of the past, says a new study.
A new study finds that a system of lakes under Thwaites Glacier have undergone large drainage events, highlighting underestimates in the melting rate of the glacier.
An engineer at Lamont-Doherty, Frearson builds instruments that help scientists collect vital data in Antarctica, the deep sea, and at the top of volcanoes.
A new study has revealed extensive new damage to two major Antarctic glaciers that creates the conditions needed for ice shelf collapse.
The warmer it gets, the faster Antarctica will lose ice, and at some point the losses will become irreversible. That is what researchers say in a new cover story in the leading journal Nature, in which they calculate how much warming the Antarctic Ice Sheet can survive.
