Yutian Wu, an atmospheric scientist at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, received funding from the Center for Climate and Life to investigate whether the loss of Arctic sea ice promotes severe weather over North America.
A new algorithm quickly sifts through hours of field recordings to learn how climate change influences bird migration. The A.I. could help track other wildlife as well.
A thousand years ago, powerful Viking chieftans flourished in Norway’s Lofoten Islands. In an environment frequently hovering on the edge of survivability, small shifts in climate or sea level could mean life or death.
Marco Tedesco, a glaciologist at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and the lead author of the Arctic Report Card chapter on Greenland, discusses some of the changes he has been seeing in Greenland.
The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation will support research by Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory scientists on the changing patterns of Arctic ice and other physical characteristics in Kotzebue Sound and the Chukchi Sea, using a combination of remote sensing technologies and indigenous knowledge.
