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.
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.
Modeling of flow and transport in fractured rock remains a challenging problem in hydrogeology, one that particularly arises in the context of finding and developing appropriate sites for radioactive waste containment.
ESD’s Jonny Rutqvist (Staff Scientist) and Frederic Cappa (affiliated staff from University of Nice, France) received the 2013 Rock Mechanics Research Award from the American Rock Mechanics Association (ARMA).
LBNL Deputy Director Horst Simon, in a message to the Lab, announces a wealth of Lab activities related to Earth Day and Earth Week, and invites all Lab employees to learn how they can make a positive impact.
The flowing fluid electric conductivity (FFEC) logging method is a well-logging technique used to estimate flow rate, salinity, transmissivity, and the hydraulic head of individual fractures or high-permeability zones intersected by a wellbore.
Predicting the behavior of contaminants that may be released in surface and subsurface environments is a major challenge to environmental scientists worldwide.
ESD’s Bob Budnitz discusses the safety problems behind the recent outage of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station near San Diego, suggesting that the implications of a prolonged outage are mostly economic.
