Human-induced climate change reduces chance of flooding in Okavango Delta

March 27, 2014

Researchers at the University of Cape Town, Berkeley Lab and the United Nations Development Programme have analyzed how human-induced climate change has affected recent flooding in an ecologically and geographically unique river basin in southern Africa—the Okavango River. After running a number of simulations, they found that greenhouse gas emissions have substantially reduced the chance of the floods in the region. Read More »

A New Mathematics for Experimental Science

March 17, 2014

In the age of high-resolution detectors and international research collaborations, math has the potential to transform science and accelerate discovery. But this will require state-of-the-art math. That’s where the Center for Applied Mathematics for Energy Research Applications (CAMERA) comes in. Read More »

Democratizing Science With High Speed Networks

March 17, 2014

For the first time, data collected and analyzed by a very remote user of National Center for Electron Microcopy (NCEM) via the Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) has been published. As a result, many scientists are optimistic about the future of remote microscopy for DOE supported science. Read More »

A Conversation with Berkeley Lab’s ‘Pi Guy’: David Bailey

March 14, 2014

In 1993 B.G. (before Google), when writers for The Simpsons needed the 40,000th decimal digit of π (pi) for a punch line in season four’s “Marge in Chains” episode, they turned to mathematician and computer scientist David Bailey who confirmed that the digit was 1. And his reputation as the “Pi Guy” was set. Read More »

Simulations Shed Light on Pine Island Glacier’s Stability

February 28, 2014

The rapid retreat of Antarctica’s Pine Island Glacier has perhaps reached a point of no return, say three international modeling teams who ran a number of simulations to model the glacier’s behavior. To do this work, they relied on three different ice-flow models including BISICLES, which was developed by a collaboration that included Berkeley Lab computational scientists. Read More »

Disordered materials hold promise for better batteries

February 21, 2014

A lot of research is being done to facilitate the use of lithium batteries in electronic devices. Using supercomputers at NERSC, researchers have found a new avenue for such research: the use of disordered materials, which had generally been considered unsuitable for batteries. Read More »
