The United Nations General Assembly declared 2015 the International Year of Soils. Soil is critical for food production and climate regulation. It’s a complex underground ecosystem of organisms that process decaying debris to enrich the land as well as store and release carbon into the atmosphere. However, human activity and changing climate are impacting this environmental system. Scientists working at EMSL are trying to understand the complexities of soil to develop better sustainable land...
EMSL’s Special Science Call for Proposals ran from mid-April through September and generated 23 accepted studies. The call challenged prospective users to submit high-impact research projects that took advantage of EMSL’s technical resources including RadEMSL, the Quiet Wing microscopy and NanoSIMS capabilities, and HRMAC. The research associated with the call is progressing, and the projects will soon start delivering important scientific findings.
EMSL is accepting applications through May 19 for its Terrestrial and Subsurface Ecosystems Postdoctoral Appointment. The fellowship is open to high-performing recently graduated Ph.D. scientists interested in conducting integrated experimental and modeling research in belowground terrestrial carbon cycle processes.
Titled “Integration 2015: Energy Materials and Processes for Advanced Batteries and Catalysis,” EMSL’s annual meeting will be Sept. 15-17. This year’s meeting focuses on advanced batteries and catalysis research at the molecular level and is open to users and non-users.
