Mud Libraries: Key to Earth's Climate History and Future

The Lamont-Doherty Core Repository, housing over 50,000 mud samples, plays a critical role in climate science by providing researchers with earth's climate history through marine sediment cores. These samples, key to understanding climate patterns over hundreds of thousands of years, are crucial in building predictive models for future climate scenarios. The repository's continuity is threatened by funding cuts, potentially leaving gaps in knowledge. [Source](
