Large dust particles increase the likelihood of rain, according to a 14-year examination of 9 field studies around the world. Scientists from DOE’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Colorado State University, North Carolina State University, Oregon State University, University of Colorado, and National Center for Atmospheric Research found the number of dust particles larger than 0.5 micrometers in diameter closely correlates with the number of ice nuclei.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and his colleagues used the method to trace the pathway of carbon dioxide released from the deep ocean to the atmosphere at the end of the last ice age.
Nanoscale simulations and theoretical research performed at DOE's Oak Ridge National Laboratory are bringing scientists closer to realizing graphene's potential in electronic applications.
A new, high-precision measurement of the proton's hidden inner structure carried out at DOE's Jefferson Lab has yielded a surprising result.
A collaboration of scientists measured the proton's form factors, quantities that describe the shape and size of the space over which the electric charge and electric current is spread.
