A cadre of physical scientists, engineers and computing experts at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is poised to participate in the launch of three new DOE Office of Science-sponsored quantum information science research centers.
An analysis led by PNNL scientists projects that the volume of virtual water embedded in the global agriculture trade could triple by 2100. The results point to regions that might become global food suppliers or dependent on food imports.
A 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan that knocked out a nuclear power plant helped inspire PNNL computational scientists looking for clues of future nuclear reactor mishaps by tracking radioactive iodine.
New technique galvanizes iron-based nanoparticles to create an exceptional catalyst. PNNL researchers describe a new technique that produces metal nanoparticles supported on solid iron oxide, in one step, at near room temperature.
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.
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.
