Researchers catch extreme waves with higher-resolution modeling

Surfers aren't the only people trying to catch big waves. Scientists at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) are trying to do so, too, at least in wave climate forecasts.

Researchers catch extreme waves with higher-resolution modeling

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) A new Berkeley Lab study shows that high-resolution models captured hurricanes and big waves that low-resolution ones missed. Better extreme wave forecasts are important for coastal cities, the military, the shipping industry, and surfers.

Next-gen dark matter detector in a race to finish line

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) The race is on to build the most sensitive US-based experiment designed to directly detect dark matter particles. Department of Energy officials have formally approved a key construction milestone that will propel the project toward its April 2020 goal for completion.

Chemicals hitch a ride onto new protein for better compounds

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Berkeley Lab chemists have developed a powerful new method of selectively linking chemicals to proteins, a major advance in the manipulation of biomolecules that could transform the way drugs are developed, proteins are probed, and molecules are tracked and imaged.

Art Rosenfeld, 'godfather' of energy efficiency, dies at 90

Physicist Arthur Rosenfeld, who spearheaded breakthroughs in energy efficiency for lighting, refrigerators, televisions and other electronics while working at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, has died. He was 90.

The effects of thirdhand smoke

A recent study from the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, known as the Berkeley Lab, has shown that exposure to thirdhand smoke can lead to biological effects on weight and cell development. Thirdhand smoke is classified as the … The post The effects of thirdhand smoke appeared first on Bel Marra Health - Breaking Health News and Health Information.

Machine learning method accurately predicts metallic defects

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) For the first time, Berkeley Lab researchers have built and trained machine learning algorithms to predict defect behavior in certain intermetallic compounds with high accuracy. This method will accelerate research of new advanced alloys and lightweight new materials for applications spanning automotive to aerospace and much more.

Thirdhand smoke affects weight, blood cell development in mice

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) A new Berkeley Lab-led study found that the sticky residue left behind by tobacco smoke led to changes in weight and blood cell count in mice. These latest findings add to a growing body of evidence that thirdhand smoke exposure may be harmful.

Berkeley Lab gets $4.6 million in functional genomics catalog project

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Berkeley Lab is set to receive nearly $4.6 million over four years as part of an ongoing, federally funded project to create a comprehensive catalog for fundamental genomics research. This latest expansion of the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements (ENCODE) project, or ENCODE 4, is funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute.

High-resolution imaging reveals new understanding of battery cathode particles

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Using advanced imaging techniques, scientists at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have been able to observe what exactly happens inside a cathode particle as lithium-ion batteries are charged and discharged.

Riddle: What Metal Conducts Electricity, But Not Heat?

If you can’t answer the riddle, don’t feel bad. Metal conductors usually conduct electricity and heat. Usually, that’s true, but researchers at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and at the University of...Show More Summary

Images show cytofilaments linking cell nucleus to extracellular environment

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) New images are providing the first visual evidence of a long-postulated physical link by which genes can receive mechanical cues from its microenvironment. Created by integrating six different imaging techniques, the images show thread-like cytofilaments reaching into and traversing a human breast cell's chromatin-packed nucleus.

$5M foundation gift to help support US-China energy center at Berkeley Lab

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) In 2015, Berkeley Lab, UC Berkeley, and Tsinghua University in Beijing formed the Berkeley Tsinghua Joint Research Center on Energy and Climate Change to develop scientifically based clean energy solutions and the next generation of leaders to champion those solutions.
