I am a paleoceanographer/marine geologist who studies the history and causes of climate change in the Earth’s past. I am a member of the National Academy of Sciences and a Fellow of The Explorer’s Club.  By the time I was eight I wanted to be an oceanographer.   As a college freshman at Brown University I discovered the field of paleoclimatology.   In the summer of 2011 I landed at Lamont, returning to the same labs I left from with a Ph.D. in the late 80s.   It’s great to be back at this special place.

I enjoy speaking to all kinds of audiences, from scientists, to student groups, to the general public, on topics ranging from my latest research to the much broader problem of global climate change. My aim is to be informative and inspiring with the twin goals of empowering individuals through a better understanding climate science and motivating action on behalf of our shared global environment.

Praise for Maureen Raymo:

“Maureen Raymo speaks with authority–a presentation both factual and far-reaching.”
        Bill McKibbon,

“Out of the hundreds of talks I have heard or given on this subject (climate change), I thought yours struck the best balance amongst science based concerns, the need for immediate action and examples of human scale solutions which we can realistically employ.”
        John Van Leer, U. Miami

“Although I have been a believer in global warming, your presentation reignited my interest and advocacy for the issue. I appreciate you providing me with the information and data to make a strong case.”
        Jeannie Witmer, New York City
