PALISADES - Rep. Nita Lowey announced a five-year funding agreement from the National Science Foundation that will go toward helping Rockland researchers study the sub-surface of the ocean floor.

Lamont research professor Dr. Maureen Raymo says the oceanic research can lead to answers about issues such as climate change.

She teaches her research assistants how to analyze cores or earth matter.

“It's cutting edge research. Learning about our Earth and how it has changed in the past,” said Dr. Raymo.

The $35 million award will also go toward testing for lead in the Hudson River.

The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory has up to 500 researchers drilling the ocean's seaboard throughout the year.
