Study: Earth's Radiative Forcing Affected by Rising CO₂

Berkeley Lab research yields first direct observation of carbon dioxide’s increasing greenhouse effect at the Earth’s surface. The culprit? Fossil fuel emissions.


New Algorithm Enables Ultrafast Simulations

An enhancement to real-time time-dependent density function theory code opens the door for real-time simulations in atomic-level materials research.


New Software Catalog

Researchers in Berkeley Lab’s CRD are renowned for developing novel software packages for use in modeling and simulation, computer science and data science. Now, for the first time, all of these tools have been incorporated into a single catalog.


The Magnetic Moments of Nuclear Matter

Calculations run at NERSC helped a team of nuclear physicists shed new light on the structure and behavior of subatomic particles.


A Standard for Neuroscience Data

BrainFormat, a neuroscience data standardization framework developed at Berkeley Lab is now a strong contender to contribute to the development of a data format and storage standard for the neuroscience research community.

    What Makes Clouds Grow and Die?

    February 19, 2015: Big clouds get bigger while small clouds shrink may seem like a simple concept, but the mechanisms behind how clouds are born, grow and die are surprisingly complex. Using supercomputers at Berkeley Lab’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), researchers found that factors as small as how sizes of raindrops were represented in a computer model made a big difference in the accuracy of the results.
