Laboratories, Institutes and User Facilities

Atmospheric Measurements Laboratory (AML)

Atmospheric Measurements Laboratory (AML)

The Atmospheric Measurements Laboratory (AML) is one of the nation's leading research facilities for conducting experiments to understand aerosols, clouds, and their interactions. This facility is located on the PNNL campus in Richland, Washington.

Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility

ARM is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science user facility. It comprises mobile, stationary, and aircraft atmospheric observatories located around the world, and their resulting data collections. PNNL provides overall technical direction of ARM for DOE.

ARM Aerial Facility (AAF)

ARM Aerial Facility (AAF)

The AAF provides airborne measurements required to answer research questions proposed by scientists from around the world. PNNL manages the structure, processes, and operations of the AAF for DOE's ARM user facility.

Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL)

Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL)

EMSL is a DOE national scientific user facility shared and used by researchers from around the world. Research at EMSL, located on the PNNL campus, focuses principally on developing a molecular-level understanding of the physical, chemical, and biological processes that underlie the nations' most critical environmental and energy challenges. PNNL manages EMSL for DOE.

Joint Global Change Research Institute (JGCRI)

Joint Global Change Research Institute (JGCRI)

The Joint Global Change Research Institute located in College Park, Maryland, is a partnership between PNNL and the University of Maryland. Through a broad range of national and international collaborations, the Institute focuses on research, modeling and integrated analyses at the interface of human, energy, and environmental systems.
