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.
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 new PNNL report says the western U.S. power system can handle large-scale vehicle electrification up to 24 million vehicles through 2028, but more than that and cities could start feeling the squeeze.
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.
PNNL and the U.S. Forest Service used a combination of data, models, analytical techniques and software to evaluate forest restoration impacts on the environment, while also assessing the economics of resulting biomass.
At PNNL, subsurface science inhabits two separate but interlocking worlds. One looks at basic science, the other at applied science and engineering. Both are funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
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.
