Strategic Vision

Lamont, as a world-leading Earth and climate science research enterprise, is prepared to respond to the escalating urgency for science-informed solutions. As the scientific research heart of the newly launched Columbia Climate School, the Observatory is also poised to expand its influence and value to society. 

Our leading-edge work has never been more important, more critically needed. Within that context, Lamont is preparing to roll out a strategic vision for its next decade of discovery. We look forward to sharing this bold, aspirational plan.
