CRD Staff to Present Research, Expertise at 2014 AGU Meeting

December 11, 2014

This week, nearly 24,000 Earth and space scientists, educators and students will convene in San Francisco for the 2014 Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union. The meeting will be held Dec. 15-19 at the Moscone Convention Center.

Among the presenters will be a number of Computational Research Division staff highlighting their research in invited talks, technical presentations, posters and discussions. Here is a list of many of those presentations.

About Berkeley Lab

Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 16 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science. Berkeley Lab is a multiprogram national laboratory, managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit
