Inez Fung led a U.S. team that partnered with the U.K. Royal Society in issuing a publication that distills climate change science, helping policymakers and the public make decisions toward mitigating climate change’s damaging effects.
Scientists from LANL visited Berkeley Lab in late February 2014 to work with ESD scientists Yuxin Wu, Craig Ulrich, Tim Kneafsey, and Catherine McKnight on Arctic soil cores collected at the NGEE Barrow, Alaska, site.
As noted in a late February 2014 TABL-Tech Transfer article, ESD scientists recently received Lab royalties for their work.
Earlier this week, DOE’s Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) hosted a summit and technology showcase in National Harbor, Maryland, in which they debuted four project videos. One of them, on biofuels, prominently mentions ESD’s Christer Jansson and his innovative work.
Jeff Chambers is part of an international scientific team (from U.S.A., Brazil, and Germany) working on Green Ocean Amazon (GOAmazon), to study the intricacies of the natural state of the Amazon rainforest atmosphere and land systems.

In a recent article on the PBS NOVA Next website, ESD‘s Janet Jansson discusses the enormous value that soil, ocean, and human-gut bacteria have within their various ecosystems.
Our Berkeley Lab Earth Scientists and Staff Volunteers are back in their offices only to ramp during post-AGU week to finish other projects, read through emails, and get as much done before the end of the year! No rest for the weary! The American Geophysical Union's (AGU) Annual Fall Meeting,...
At the recent AGU meeting, ESD’s Michael Manga reported using interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) techniques to conclude that an Indonesian volcano system is likely to be spent by 2017.
Scientists have recently proposed a method by which nuclear waste could in the future be contained by injecting it into fracking boreholes. ESD hydrologist Jens Birkholzer comments on this possibility.
