"We're leading the efforts to understand how volcanoes work and how to forecast them."

Terry Plank is a Lamont volcanologist:

"800 million people live within 60 miles of an active volcano. Right now, almost none are forecast. The next disastrous climate crisis will be a volcanic eruption. Here at Lamont, we're leading the efforts to understand how volcanoes work and how to forecast them."

This Earth Month, we are celebrating our Earth Institute and Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory scientists and experts and the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22, 2020. Learn more and support Lamont science.
