The Lamont-Doherty Geological Observatory, Columbia University's Earth sciences research center, has changed its name to the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.

“The new name embraces not only geology, geophysics, and geochemistry, but oceanography, atmospheric sciences, hydrology, and parts of ecology, biology and solar-terrestrial physics,” said observatory director Gordon P. Eaton. “It also emphasizes the interactions of all these disciplines in the whole Earth system,” he added.
