A surprisingly vast network of waterways cuts across Antarctica’s ice shelves. Lamont-Doherty scientists have now systematically catalogued the melt streams, revealing them to be more extensive than previously thought.
Researchers at Columbia University have made a significant step toward breaking the so-called “color barrier” of light microscopy for biological systems.
Scientists from Lamont-Dohery Earth Observatory have discovered that seasonally flowing streams fringe much of Antarctica’s ice. The widespread presence of these melt streams signals that the ice may be more vulnerable to melting than previously thought.
Genes that cause MacTel–a rare disease of the retina–remain elusive, but a new study from an international team of researchers has narrowed the search. The researchers combed through the genomes of more than 450 patients and identified five small regions of the genome where MacTel genes are likely to reside.
