Welcome to EMSL
ASTM International has selected EMSL’s Don Baer to receive the 2014 Award of Merit, the organization's highest recognition. He earned the award the for his exceptional service to ASTM International Committee E42 on Surface Analysis, innovations in the development of standards for surface analysis and development of new information resources for surface analysis.
EMSL scientists Patrick Reardon and Karl Mueller studied the protein structures that make up nanowires on some bacteria. These tiny electrical wires contribute to rock and dirt formation. Their findings have implications for producing energy, recycling Earth's carbon and miniaturizing computers.
EMSL- and DOE-supported research on the formation and lifecycle secondary organic aerosols shows current climate models are underestimating the total amount of carbon-containing particles formed in the air.
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.
