ESD’s Ernie Majer is one of several scientists interviewed in a recent National Geographic article about the spike in earthquakes in Oklahoma, and its potential connection to oil and gas wastewater disposal.
In a recent radio interview, ESD’s Travis O’Brien and other climate scientists discuss the importance of fog, with O’Brien calling for (and applauding the recent development of) more accurate fog forecasting within climate models.
A team including ESD’s Sergi Molins and Carl Steefel was awarded 50 million hours at NERSC to further develop its novel simulation of pore-scale flow and reactive transport with unprecedented spatial resolution and process fidelity.
ESD’s Javier Ceja-Navarro and others have characterized the gut microbiome of a wood-feeding beetle native to the eastern US, finding in its gut a metabolic capability permitting both aerobic and anaerobic activity, as well as N2 fixation.

Hoi-Ying Holman and her team of scientists have won a 2014 R&D 100 award, for their Multiplex Chemotyping Microarray (MCM). The MCM generates collections of microscopic biomolecule or particle assemblies accurately and reproducibly.
ESD welcomes Dr. Paulo Artaxo (University of São Paulo), presenting "DSSS: The Close Links Between Biology and Atmospheric Chemistry in Amazonia" July 11 at 10:30am in the Bldg. 66 Auditorium.
Daniele Rosa and Bill Collins compared precipitation data from Southeastern U.S. rain-gauge measurements with GCMs, finding that GCMs overestimate the impact of medium rainfall while underestimating the impact of no, low, or heavy rain.
Don DePaolo was selected as the 2014 AGU Harry Hess Medal winner for (among other things) his groundbreaking research on the geochemical structure of the Earth’s mantle using neodymium isotopes.
Having been selected for a new round of EFRC funding, NCGC is focused on producing robust predictive models for subsurface carbon dioxide trapping processes across scales.
