Lamont-Doherty Receives Money for Ocean Studies

Congresswoman Nita Lowey announced on Friday that Rockland County’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, of Colombia University, has received $35 million through a five-year contract from the National Science Foundation to their studies of the ocean floor. At a conference the Congresswoman stated that the money will help scientist continue to learn about and understand earthquakes, climate change, and global warming and how it all relates to the bottom of the ocean, an area of the planet where researchers have much more exploration to do. The contract will allow Lamont- Doherty to create a project run by five employees, that will collect and study samples taken from the ocean.
