Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University
Service Provider DescriptionThe Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO) is a leading research
institution where more than 200 research scientists seek fundamental
knowledge about the origin, evolution and future of the natural world.
LDEO scientists observe Earth on a global scale, from its deepest
interior to the outer reaches of its atmosphere, on every continent
and in every ocean. They decipher the long record of the past, monitor
the present, and seek to foresee Earth?s future.
From global climate change to earthquakes, volcanoes, nonrenewable
resources, environmental hazards and beyond, the Observatory?s
fundamental challenge is to provide a rational basis for the difficult
choices faced by humankind in the stewardship of the planet.
