Science Themes

Molecular-scale understanding of key chemical and physical properties of aerosols to accurately predict regional air quality and climate.
Optimizing and understanding the responses of organisms and biological communities to their environment.
Understanding the physical and chemical properties of interfaces to design new materials for energy applications.
Understanding molecular processes in terrestrial and subsurface environments.

Featured Stories

Arctic clouds are widespread and play an important role in climate, but different models have produced widely varying predictions about the properties of these clouds. A new study analyzes simulations of Arctic clouds by 11 different models and identifies the key factor responsible for the variable predictions.
The effects of biogeochemical and geochemical processes in the ground under us are on massive scales. Scientists working at EMSL are getting a handle on these gigantic macroscopic processes by focusing on the microscopic scale. By creating micromodels and incorporating supercomputer simulations, researchers are gaining a better understanding of the processes that affect our entire ecosystem.
Virtually tour EMSL's Radiochemistry Annex, a facility designed for the understanding of the chemical fate and transport of radionuclides in terrestrial and subsurface ecosystems.
Tim Scheibe has been selected as lead scientist for EMSL’s Multiscale Modeling and High Performance Computing. In this role he will develop and implement a science strategy for multiscale modeling and high performance computing, including attracting high-quality staff and an active user community.
