Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory Geochemistry Research Building

Columbia has long been home to breakthroughs in climate change and environmental sciences. Few areas of academic research are more essential to our global future. With the help of a generous donation from Gary Comer and the Comer Science and Education Foundation, the University has completed a state-of-the-art geochemistry building for Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, the main research facility for Columbia University’s Earth Institute. The new, 63,000-square-foot facility will provide a home for the Geochemistry Division, which is now spread across buildings throughout the campus. The building has been registered with the U.S. Green Building Council as a LEED building and will also incorporate standards outlined by the Labs21 approach, a voluntary program sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy to improve the energy efficiency and environmental performance of laboratories.
