Geothermal energy program heats up

July 10, 2009- 
Twenty years ago, Lawrence Livermore National Lab had a thriving geothermal program. But as funding dwindled, the program did as well. But thanks to a new flow of money from the Department of Energy Geothermal Technologies Program Office, the LLNL research will soon flourish again. Earlier this year, DOE issued a call for proposals. Each national lab was allowed to submit four...

Plutonium transport research well grounded

June 26, 2009- 
Five years from now, Lab scientists will be able to better determine how, when and why plutonium moves in soil and groundwater.The way to predict how plutonium (Pu) is transported in groundwater away from a site and potentially toward populated areas is by looking at the dominant geochemical processes that control plutonium's behavior in the subsurface at environmental levels. But that isn't...
