Mack Kennedy will be the lead point of contact for the Berkeley Lab aspect of the multiphase FORGE effort, which could unlock access to a domestic, geographically diverse, and carbon-free source of clean energy.
Margaret Torn received an honorary doctorate from the University of Zurich, Switzerland, for her “outstanding achievements and fundamental contributions to understanding biogeochemical processes in ecosystems.”
A team of scientists (including ESD Geochemistry Department Head Ben Gilbert) recently investigated the photoreduction of manganese (a key element in environmental processes) and quantified the yield and timescales of Mn(III) production.
ESD’s Carl Steefel, Eoin Brodie, and Charlie Koven, among others, collectively sought ways of applying new scientific computing capabilities to studies of Earth’s subsurface. One of the results was IDEAS.
Join fellow ESD researchers (Romy Chakraborty, Gary Andersen, and Eric Dubinsky) in the Lab's first ever on-site composting and gardening event for Earth Day (April 22), in partnership with Sustainable Berkeley Lab and Facilities.
From Tuesday, April 21 to Friday, April 24, Lab staff can volunteer for and assessment of the Lab’s waste, participate in a new composting and gardening research project, watch a documentary on ecology, or learn about and the Lab’s sustainability efforts from John Elliott.

As captured on video, LBNL-ESD Climate Science Department Head Bill Collins recently testified (along with Jeff Greenblatt of LBNL Energy Technologies) before the California State Assembly Budget Subcommittee on Resources and Transportation.
Jill Banfield and others compared two ways of using next generation genomic sequencing machines, one of which produced significantly longer reads than the other—perhaps helping to close the gaps in microbial identification that exists now.
ESD’s Ken Williams, recently featured in DOE JGI's collaborating science videos, describes the Genomes-to-Watershed Scientific Focus Area research activities at the Rifle, Colorado.
