Biosphere 2: One of the Largest Living Laboratories in the World

Columbia University's Biosphere 2 Center near Tucson, Arizona is one of the largest living laboratories in the world. It is an airtight greenhouse covering 3.15 acres, and it contains several different biomes -- a rainforest, a million-gallon saltwater ocean, a coastal fog desert, and four other wilderness ecosystems. Researchers use the biomes to experiment on Earth systems on a relatively large scale. Last December, Columbia announced its plan to enlarge Biosphere 2 to accommodate 350 students and expand the size of program offerings at the campus.
