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.
Phase I of the Sustainable Systems SFA 2.0, launching on October 1st, 2013, will be a study located at Rifle, CO to develop a predictive understanding of genome-through-watershed system biogeochemical responses to global change.
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.
ESD researchers led by Division Director Susan Hubbard are part of a team engaged in highly diverse data collecting activities in the Arctic—to gain an advanced understanding, and modeling, of integrated ecosystem processes within the region.
