Alexander Probst and Jillian Banfield were part of a group of scientists that documented the ecology and physiology of a novel uncultivated archaeon that may be key to the subsurface carbon cycle.
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.
ESD Climate Sciences Head Bill Collins was one of 401 Fellows for 2014 elected by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). AAAS honored these scientists for their contributions to innovation, education, and scientific leadership. Collins was specifically recognized for “distinguished contributions to the field of climate science...
Cyclotron Road innovator Deepak Dugar will be working with Steve Singer toward developing the next generation of biocatalysts and processes for converting renewable feedstocks into chemicals and fuels at a competitive price.
ESD climate scientists Jinyun Tang and Bill Riley have developed a climate model that quantifies interactions between soil microbes and their surroundings.
Using some of the most powerful supercomputers now available, a team of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) climate scientists headed by Michael Wehner (and including ESD Climate Science Head Bill Collins) was able to complete a run a high resolution global-climate-model simulation in just three months.
ESD’s David Romps recently led a team of climate scientists in looking at predictions of cloud buoyancy in 11 different climate models—the combined effect of which (they concluded) will generate more frequent lightning strikes.
ESD’s Giovanni Birarda and others recently investigated the microbiome relatedness of subsurface biofilms within two sulfidic springs in Germany—the results of which provide insight into the dynamics of subsurface microbial life.
ESD’s Dan Feldman and Bill Collins have identified a mechanism that could turn out to be a big contributor to warming in the Arctic region and melting sea ice—in the far infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum.
ESD welcomes Dr. Dimitri Sverjensky (Johns Hopkins University), presenting "DSSS: Molecules, Hot Water and Minerals: Ingredients for the Origin of Life?" November 7 at 10:30am in the Bldg. 66 Auditorium.
