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.
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.
PNNL’s integrated software systems (FRAMES, MEPAS, MetView, APGEMS, CAPP) allow users to assess the environmental fate and transport of contaminants—and the potential impacts on humans and the environment—in a systematic, holistic approach.
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.
PNNL partners with agencies and industry to identify and engage historically disadvantaged populations in regulatory decision-making, environmental assessment, and impact estimation of the consequences of complex polices and projects.
The Interfacial Dynamics in Radioactive Environments and Materials (IDREAM) Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) conducts fundamental science to support innovations in retrieving and processing high-level radioactive waste.
PNNL's Ocean Dynamics Modeling group studies coastal processes such as marine-hydrokinetic energy, coastal circulations, storm surge and extreme waves, tsunamis, sediment transport and nutrient-macroalgal dynamics.
