LBNL scientists conduct multidisciplinary environmental research using theoretical, numerical, and experimental approaches that range from the molecular to the field scale. The synergy offered by the ensemble of competencies within the Earth Science Division facilitates investigation of complex natural systems. The research takes advantage of multidisciplinary team expertise with internationally recognized strengths in: environmental microbiology, environmental synchrotron science, isotope geochemistry, environmental geophysics, and reactive transport modeling. Common objectives for projects within this Research Area include the:
A significant component of the LBNL environmental remediation research area is the LBNL Sustainable Systems Scientific Focus Area, which is funded by the DOE Climate and Environmental Sciences Division of BER and includes 22 scientists and several postdocs and graduate students. The Sustainable Systems SFA considers the nature and interactions of key hydrological, microbiological, geochemical components as needed to connect the fundamental processes with their macroscopic manifestations.
