A Year of Challenges: Racing to Understand Our Changing Planet
During 2020, we continued building upon our legacy of scientific leadership, producing landmark research about the inner workings of our planet.
Even as the pandemic paused our field season, altering the life of our campus, we welcomed a new interim director.
We made a commitment to anti-racism and institutional change.
We launched new virtual learning experiences.
We became the scientific research heart of the newly launched Columbia Climate School.
As the year draws to a close, Lamont is poised to continue the vital work of illuminating Earth’s fragility, resilience, and wonder as we strive to prepare the next generation of scientific leaders.
