Whether you’re an aspiring young scientist or a long-time science enthusiast, you’re sure to enjoy Lamont-Doherty’s Open House. Tour a lab, participate in hands-on earth science demonstrations, and learn from world-renowned researchers about their latest discoveries!
ECOGIG outreach staff brought the Ocean Discovery Zone to Lamont Doherty's Open House on October 8th- visitors learned about our investigations into the effects of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill on the unique deep water ecosystem of the Gulf of Mexico, drove a model remotely operated vehicle (ROV), built a deep water coral, and learned about the importance of healthy ocean ecosystems!
