PNNL scientist Dr. Xiao-Ying Yu and her team have discovered important information about the formation of secondary organic aerosols, which are quickly becoming a primary pollutant of concern in terms of climate change.
Nitrogen oxides, also known as NOx, form when fossil fuels burn at high temperatures. When emitted from industrial sources such as coal power plants, these pollutants react with other compounds to produce harmful smog.
The inner Salish Sea’s future response to climate change, while significant, is predicted to be less severe than that of the open ocean based on parameters like algal blooms, ocean acidification, and annual occurrences of hypoxia.
Eric Hoppe, senior scientist, was selected a 2019 American Chemical Society (ACS) fellow. Eric is being recognized for his contributions to analytical chemistry measurements and three decades of volunteer service to the ACS community.
PNNL scientists have taken one of the most in-depth looks ever at the riot of protein activity that underlies colon cancer and have identified potential new molecular targets to try to stop the disease.
In one of the largest blockchain grid-cyber projects of its kind, PNNL is working with a network of industry partners to test and demonstrate blockchain’s ability to increase the cybersecurity resilience of power grid.
