Throughout Earth Month, we’ll be sharing some of the incredible photos that our researchers have captured during field work. Enjoy!

A look back at the past year and lessons from the pandemic that might help in solving climate change.

A new study finds that that even when air pollution in Kinshasa and Brazzaville is at its lowest, it’s still four times higher than World Health Organization guidelines.

She likes to go hiking during her lunch break and enjoys weekly Zoom calls with her sisters during the pandemic.

The discovery of fossil plants below a mile of Greenland ice indicates that the ice sheet completely melted in the past, and suggests it could rapidly do so again.

Movements of winds in the Southern Hemisphere may be the key to waxing and waning of ice ages, says a new study.

The postdoctoral researcher studies hydrothermal systems and will soon go to the Chilean Andes to explore how geyser activity there may be related to glacier growth and retreat over thousands of years.

A new study employs natural climate archives such as tree rings to better understand volcanoes’ impacts on global rainfall patterns.

Fifth graders commemorate pioneering mapmaker Marie Tharp using comics, pictures, and poems.

Gender equality is an essential ingredient in building a fair and sustainable world. Today we’re publishing stories that honor the accomplishments of many of our women colleagues.

Mingfang Ting studies the connection between planetary waves in the atmosphere and climate anomalies, such as droughts and extreme heat.

New research suggests that photosynthetic green algae also eat bacteria on a previously unsuspected scale.

CO2 molecules make up only a small percentage of the atmosphere, but their impact on our climate is huge. The reason comes down to physics and chemistry.

Is a failure of wind power really behind the blackouts? How can we make sure this doesn’t happen again? Earth Institute scholars have answers to these questions and more.

She studies Earth’s past warm periods to try to understand the future, and was just named a 2021 Sloan Research Fellow.
