PGI Lamont Research Professor
Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory Columbia University

This year has been a rough year as we together recognized our global
connectivity. Whether it is the ice in Antarctica causing the sea levels to
inch up in Miami, the COVID virus rearranging our lives or the recognition
of widespread systemic racism. The remarkable link between these three is
that solutions rest in individual, institution and cultural shifts that are
within our reach.

Dr. Robin Bell received her undergraduate degree in geology from Middlebury
College in Vermont and her Ph.D. in geophysics from Columbia University in
1989. Bell has explored our planet’s ice sheets, developed innovative
technology and improved the scientific culture for women. Bell has
coordinated ten major aero-geophysical expeditions to Antarctica and
Greenland, studying what makes ice sheets collapse, discovering a volcano
beneath the West Antarctic ice sheet and several large lakes beneath two
miles of ice, and demonstrating that ice sheets can thicken from below. She
led a Lamont team to map the Hudson River from Staten Island to Albany. She
was the first women to chair the National Academy of Science’s Polar
Research Board (2002-2008) and launched the International Polar Year
2007-2009 that brought together over 50,000 scientists from around the
globe. Bell is president of the American Geophysical Union, the largest
organization of Earth and space scientists in the world.
