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. The result was IDEAS.
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.
The third of three video productions related to the SFA 2.0 project describes the powerful influence of metabolic potential—the collective metabolic capabilities of subsurface microbial communities and their impact on ecosystems.
Water, water everywhere, but how did it get from here to there? ESD’s Ken Williams explains in the second of three videos describing the Genome-to-Watershed Scientific Focus Area (SFA) 2.0 project.
ESD has recently released a video on its Genomes-to-Watershed project at DOE’s Rifle, CO, site. In this video, Susan Hubbard (Project Lead for SFA 2.0 and ESD Director) gives an overview of the project and its mission.
ESD’s Boris Faybishenko recently received word that Groundwater Vulnerability: The Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster, for which he was a writer and lead editor, has been published and distributed worldwide by Wiley.
Website Teaser: Ken Williams and Phil Long were part of a team that recently compared two types of organic-rich sediments to better understand uranium release mechanisms at contaminated sites.
ESD’s Harry Beller, Peter Nico, and colleagues studied chromate bioremediation and found that the bulk redox status and biogeochemical regime do not necessarily control the final product of Cr(VI) reduction.
ESD’s contributions to ASCEM— which marks the first attempt “to use high-performance computing uncertainty quantification to identify key controls at a contaminated site” –was recently recognized in LANL’s Actinide Research Quarterly.
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.
