Featured Stories

Washington State Academy of Sciences’ membership has elected EMSL Chief Scientist Don Baer as a member of the academy for his outstanding scientific achievement and leadership. He will be inducted into the academy in September.
A special issue of Proteomics highlighted EMSL’s top down proteomics expertise. The journal featured Ljiljana Paša-Tolic, EMSL’s lead scientist for mass spectroscopy, who co-edited the special issue, co-authored the publication’s editorial and contributed to three of the research articles. Other EMSL and PNNL researchers also contributed to the special issue.
Arctic clouds are widespread and play an important role in climate, but different models have produced widely varying predictions about the properties of these clouds. A new study analyzes simulations of Arctic clouds by 11 different models and identifies the key factor responsible for the variable predictions.
