Read about our upcoming effort to collect bedrock cores from beneath the Greenland Ice Sheet. These cores will help us determine the last time the Greenland Ice Sheet disappeared.
To better understand the trajectory of future glacier change, and related environmental variability, better regional influences on glacier behavior across the planet must be elucidated. For this reason, detailed knowledge of regional glacier change and their deviations from the global pattern are critically needed for paleoclimate and glacial-geomorphology communities. Carbon dioxide changes during the last deglaciation were tightly coupled to mountain glacier change. Yet, this compilation lacked data from the high latitudes.
We Support JEDI
We believe in Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Geosciences, one of the least diverse STEM communities in the US and beyond. We recognize that we failed Sciences and our community over the last decades, and define the JEDI goals as central challenges for our community, for Lamont and for the Cosmo Group. We endorse the Lamont Black Lives Matter-Anti-Racism commitment as well as the Lamont Code of Conduct.
