Physicist Emily Mace will share her science journey and an interactive presentation about her current research with middle school and high school students from across the country at the National Science Bowl.
PNNL provided ultra-low measurements of argon-39 to date groundwater as part of a collaborative study of the aquifer in California’s San Joaquin Valley. PNNL is one of only a few laboratories worldwide with this capability.
Scientists at PNNL have contributed much of the nuclear science that underlies an international monitoring system designed to detect nuclear explosions worldwide. The system detects radioxenon anywhere on the planet.
