At the AGU meeting this week in San Francisco, ESD participants in the AmeriFlux Project (including co-PI Margaret Torn) will be giving talks, sharing posters, and staffing ESD’s “Meet a Scientist”booth.
ESD ‘s Sebastien Biraud was co-author of a scientific paper cited earlier this week in a New York Times article on the increasing emissions of methane, a greenhouse gas, into Earth’s atmosphere.
The new CASCADE SFA, headed by ESD’s Bill Collins, will determine how human-induced global warming is altering climate extremes, and how further warming will alter “strange weather” in the future.
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.
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.
ESD's Bill Collins is part of a group of scientists (headed by LBNL's Michael Wehner) who find big changes in store for Earth's climate, in the latest IPCC report.
The Rifle, Colorado, floodplain provides an excellent test bed for interrogating how global change affects biogeochemical system functioning. This work will be essential for the new BER-funded SFA 2.0, Phase I effort at Rifle.
ESD’s Margaret Torn is featured on the KQED Quest website, in an article by noted science writer Jennifer Huber entitled “The Great Escape: How Soil Microbes Protect Us from Carbon Emissions.”
ESD climate scientists Margaret Torn and Sebastien Biraud were part of a team of investigators who earlier this year published one of the first estimates of CO2 surface-flux global distribution, using total column CO2 measurements retrieved from the Greenhouse gases Observing SATellite (GOSAT).
Call for Proposals for the Berkeley Lab Innovation Grants 2014. The purpose of the Innovation Grants Program is to advance the development of Lab inventions and software toward commercial applications.
