Digital Twins for Hydropower

PNNL and ORNL are working together on Digital Twins to modernize the U.S. hydropower plant fleet, which will reduce operating costs, improve reliability, reduce downtime, enhance grid resiliency, and reduce environmental impacts.
PROGRAM

E4D

E4D is a 3D geophysical modeling and inversion program designed for subsurface imaging and monitoring using static and time-lapse electrical resistivity tomography (ERT), spectral induced polarization (SIP) and travel-time tomography data.

Earth Science in the News

From global issues such as melting permafrost and the creation of alternate biofuels to matters affecting microbiomes and micro-sized life, PNNL research is featured in news publications worldwide.
PROGRAM

Electron Microscopy

PNNL is a leader in the integration of aberration-corrected electron microscopy, in-situ techniques, and atom probe tomography to address challenges in nuclear materials, environmental remediation, energy storage, and national security.
