Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University

The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory is a research division of Columbia University dedicated to understanding how the planet Earth works. Included in this page are the various areas of research the observatory is conducting. This includes research on the oceans climate and environment, solid Earth, and life/biology. A link to data repositories for each of these areas of study is also included. This includes data on borehole research, core repository, climate data library, earthquake strong motion, and coastal upwelling.
