The U.C. Global Food Initiative, extensively supported by ESD environmental and climate programs within Berkeley Lab, is inviting applications for a student fellowship opportunity. Applications are due October 1, 2014.


Complex Soil Systems: An Energetic Exchange

Eoin Brodie and Boris Faybishenko recently co-chaired the first Complex Soil Systems Conference in downtown Berkeley. This flagship conference, strove to develop “A Path to Improved Understanding of Complex Soil Systems.”


Prestigious AGU Award to Don DePaolo

Don DePaolo was selected as the 2014 AGU Harry Hess Medal winner for (among other things) his groundbreaking research on the geochemical structure of the Earth’s mantle using neodymium isotopes.


Jens Birkholzer Named Earth Sciences Division Deputy

Jens Birkholzer has been named as the new ESD Division Deputy. As announced by ESD's Director Susan Hubbard, Jens will have an expanded role in developing a variety of subsurface energy related opportunities at Berkeley Lab.

ESD Director Susan Hubbard was among 15 women scientists honored at Berkeley Lab, as part of a celebration of women science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workers researching ways to change the world for the better.


ESD Site Environmentally Stellar

The Earth Sciences Division was recently awarded “LEED Platinum” status for its newly redesigned headquarters in Bld. 74—the first such award for any Berkeley Lab or DOE building within the Science Laboratory Infrastructure program.


Modeling Pore-Scale Geological Carbon Sequestration

The convergence of world class computational (NERSC) and characterization (ALS) resources has made it possible for ESD scientists Sergi Molins, Carl Steefel, Jonathan Ajo-Franklin, and Li Yang together with CRD scientist David Trebotich to develop and apply Next Generation pore scale reactive transport models to the problem of geological CO2 injection and sequestration in the subsurface.
