Pat Dowell (ARM technician) collecting a pair of flask for trace gas analysis (including: CO2, CO, CH4, N2O, 13CO2, CO18O, carbonyl sulfide, and many trace hydrocarbon species) at the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility (ACRF) in the Southern Great Plains. Note the DOE aircraft in the upper left corner, flying vertical profile over the site.

Projects

Projects are typically mapped to an ESD Program and are managed by a Principal Investigator (PI). The PI ensures the scientific quality, financial and administrative responsibilities, and that health and safety requirements are met.

The Earth Sciences Division (ESD) at Berkeley Lab has received several awards from the Office of Science, the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, and other agencies through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), enacted by the 111th United States Congress in February 2009.
