VERY long list of international travel opportunities for journalists through the Earth Institute. NOTE: Journalists must pay their own way, but they do want to support coverage of their research. Check it out. Or click here if you want the pdf version from their website.

Upcoming Scientific Travel Opportunities for Journalists

Journalists are encouraged to cover expeditions by Earth Institute researchers, who work on every continent and ocean. Here are upcoming trips of potential interest, in rough chronological order (some dates approximate). Work in the New York City/Hudson Valley region is in a separate section below. Journalists may accompany scientists on a case-by-case basis; news organizations must pay for travel to sites.

Unless otherwise stated, projects originate with our Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory <http://www.ldeo.columbia.edu/>.   For those wishing to follow remotely, many teams post blogs on our State of the Planet pages <http://blogs.ei.columbia.edu/> .

Go to our Media Advisory page: http://www.earth.columbia.edu/articles/view/2637, where updates also are posted.
