California and other areas of the U.S. Southwest may see less future winter precipitation than previously projected by climate models, according to new research that corrects for a long-standing model error: the double-ITCZ bias.
PNNL led a multi-institutional effort to design a highly active and more durable catalyst made from cobalt, which sets the foundation for fuel cells to power transportation, stationary and backup power, and more.
A special issue of the Marine Technology Society Journal, titled “Utilizing Offshore Resources for Renewable Energy Development,” focuses on research and development efforts including those at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL).
As COVID-19 was limiting in-person contact, halting travel, and creating additional barriers, researchers at PNNL were working to find solutions on how they could still get work done while establishing new safety protocols.
Using public data from the entire 1,500-square-mile Los Angeles metropolitan area, PNNL researchers reduced the time needed to create a traffic congestion model by an order of magnitude, from hours to minutes.
Two PNNL researchers, one a world-leading authority on microorganisms, the other an expert on coastal ecosystem restoration, have been elected fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
