Researchers adding water to the surface of alumina measured some surprising results that raise important questions regarding the fundamental reactions that govern chemical transformations of aluminum oxides and hydroxides.
Scientists at the Interfacial Dynamics in Radioactive Environments and Materials (IDREAM) sort out which compounds are present and their concentrations, providing an important new tool with broad applicability.
Researchers from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory reviewed the current state of knowledge about the impacts of climate change on soil microorganisms in different climate-sensitive soil ecosystems.
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Kansas State University found that soil drying significantly affected the structure and function of soil microbial communities.
Soil microbial communities are made of networks of interacting species that dynamically reorganize in a changing environment. Understanding how such microbiomes are organized in nature is important for designing or controlling them in the f
