ESD’s Jeff Chambers work with the GOAmazon project is specifically designed to study the influence of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) on plant physiology, and how they affect the forest ecosystem.
ESD’s Phil Long and UC Berkeley professor Kai Vetter both offered reassuring words to those who are worried about local beaches accruing radioactive material as a result of the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.
ESD’s Janet Jansson and fellow scientists from the JGI and Michigan State University report (in PNAS) the largest soil DNA sequencing effort to date—providing both a method for sifting through the data deluge and a reality check.
ESD geophysicists are working with the Sonoma County Water Agency to investigate the influence of an old jetty on hydrological processes and fish habitat near the mouth of the Russian River.
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.
