PNNL team has developed and implemented a generalizable computational framework to study the resilience of the multilayered London Rail Network to the compound threat of intense flooding and a targeted cyberattack.
PNNL scientists have created a tool called WatchOwl to collect more than 4 million tweets per day related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The tool analyzes tweets related to interventions like social distancing and movement restrictions.
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.
The National Nuclear Security Administration Graduate Fellowship Program has welcomed aboard the Class of 2020—53 graduate students placed (virtually for now) with offices across the nuclear security enterprise.
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.
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.
Software vulnerabilities are likely to be discussed on social media before they’re revealed on a government reporting site, a practice that could pose a national security threat, according to computer scientists at PNNL.
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.
Verizon recently announced a partnership that will make Pacific Northwest National Laboratory the U.S. Department of Energy’s first national laboratory with Verizon 5G ultra wideband wireless technology.
PNNL researchers and professional staff led discussions ranging from biothreats and climate change to science careers at the 2020 annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, held this year in Seattle.
The world’s largest scientific society honored Sue B. Clark, a PNNL and WSU chemist, for contributions toward resolving our legacy of radioactive waste, advancing nuclear safeguards, and developing landmark nuclear research capabilities.
