At Open House you can —
-Visit the Seismic Sound Lab and experience the sights and sounds of earthquakes.
-Create your own eruptions at our hands-on exhibit featuring volcanoes of different eruptive intensity, volcanic rocks, and volcano research.
-Attend an earth science lecture on the latest research and discoveries at the Observatory.
-Explore the Arctic of the future through hands-on activities that demonstrate the impact of sea ice loss.
-Tour the Core Repository to learn about one of the world’s most unique and important collections of sediment cores from every major ocean and sea.
-And much, much more.

Please visit the Open House website for details on exhibits, parking, and the free shuttle to Lamont from Columbia University’s Morningside Campus.

Admission is free of charge, with a suggested $5 donation. We look forward to having you join us on October 8, 2016.
