ESD’s Meet the Scientist program at AGU 2012 will reveal the exceptional minds and diverse expertise of our earth scientists this year.
The ESD Early Career Development Grants (ECDG) is an opportunity for early career scientific staff to develop new concepts, tools and approaches with the potential to complement and/or enhance existing ESD research programs as well as develop new research directions in ESD.
Topics for our FY13 SBIR/STTR Phase I Release 2 Funding Opportunity Announcement have been issued and are available.
The FY 14 SERDP call for proposals has just been announced. This year's solicitation consists of 9 Statements of Need (SONs) for the CORE Solicitation, and 2 SONs for the SERDP Exploratory Development program (SEED). PREPROPOSALS FOR CORE SOLICITATION DUE on JANUARY 8, 2013 BY 2:00 P.M
ESD welcomes Adrian Bejan (Duke University, Durham, NC), presenting "DSSS: Constructal Law of Design and Evolution in Nature" November 16 at 10:30am in the Bldg. 66 Auditorium.
ESD’s Margaret Torn, working closely with CRD’s Deb Agarwal, will be spearheading the AmeriFlux project, which seeks to make ecosystem data gathered at 120 locations across the Americas accessible to a wide range of researchers.
ESD geochemists used molecular dynamics (MD) simulations in conjunction with reaction-rate theory calculations to determine the isotopic mass dependence of metal-water ion-exchange frequencies.
A team of scientists (including ESD Ecosystems Biology Program Head Janet Jansson) recently addressed how combining information about microbial identity and metabolic potential, with information on what genes are expressed and functioning from metatranscriptomes and metaproteomes, has opened a new window of opportunity for mapping and predicting biochemical processes in permafrost soils
ESD investigator Romy Chakraborty and her team (ESD’s Sharon Borglin, Eric Dubinsky, Gary Andersen [ESD Ecology Head], and Terry Hazen [former ESD Ecology Head]) present a comprehensive overview of the ecogenomics of microbial degradation of MC-252 oil and gases in the water column and shorelines.
ESD’s Frédéric Cappa and Jonny Rutqvist studied the likelihood of ground motions induced by a CO2 injection, using hydromechanical modeling with multiphase fluid flow and dynamic rupture, including fault-frictional weakening.
