A modeling study finds that multiple factors almost perfectly balance under anthropogenic greenhouse gas forcing, leaving no footprint on the dynamically induced ocean heat storage in the Southern Ocean.
PNNL is at the midpoint of a study focused on the installation of electric heat pump water heaters in New Orleans homes. The efficient water heaters offer a unique capability that could help speed the transition from fossil fuels.
The results of this study are consistent with the idea that the stress of chronic salinity exposure changes tree leaf shape and function, weakening their physiology and setting in motion processes that lead to death.
Scientists developed a process (or pipeline) that combined molecular probes—a specific chemical that binds to microbes carrying out a particular function—with a method that isolated these cells from their complex community.
Testing the assumption that different future socio-economic development patterns, which result in different land-use changes, can be paired with different future climate outcomes for risk assessments in a multi-model framework.
