Their consistency and predictability makes tidal energy attractive, not only as a source of electricity but, potentially, as a mechanism to provide reliability and resilience to regional or local power grids.
As author of her first publication, PNNL bioinformaticist Isabelle O’Bryon developed the first forensic proteomics method to more quickly detect ricin, a toxin often crudely made in home laboratories that can kill in trace amounts.
On World Oceans Day, an international team of marine scientists reports that the potential impact of marine renewable energy to marine life is likely small or undetectable, though some uncertainty remains.
Like many graduates crossing the finish line in 2020, the National Nuclear Security Administration Graduate Fellowship Program class of 2019-2020 transitioned its closing ceremony to a virtual environment, joined by NNSA and PNNL leaders.
In a recent review article, an interdisciplinary team of researchers led by PNNL biogeochemist Nick Ward proposed a path to refining the representation of coastal interfaces in Earth systems models used to predict climate.
A long-standing collaboration between PNNL and Oregon State University to study harmful chemicals at federally designated hazardous waste sites primarily across the Pacific Northwest has been awarded a five-year, $12.7 million grant.
The recent coronavirus pandemic shows just how quickly a deadly pathogen can sweep across the globe, killing tens of thousands in the U.S. and disrupting daily life for millions more in the span of a few months.
Scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have recently formed a new partnership with Washington State University Health Sciences Spokane to study how gut microbes influence circadian rhythms.
PNNL and the National Nuclear Security Administration are building future leaders for nuclear security through the NNSA Graduate Fellowship Program, a hands-on fellowship spanning the nuclear security enterprise.
A team of researchers is working to expand our uranium chemistry understanding using a surprising tool: lasers. This capability gives never-before-seen insight into uranium gas-phase oxidation during nuclear explosions.
A PNNL scientist is studying the structures of the proteins on the surface of the novel coronavirus, using NMR spectroscopy to reveal information about the molecular toolkit that holds the keys to a vaccine or treatment.
