SimEarth

Argonne joins its sister national laboratories in powering a new earth modeling system with supercomputers. The system features weather-scale resolution and can help researchers anticipate decadal-scale changes that could influence the U.S. energy sector in years to come.

In a recent study, Argonne researchers helped determine the rate at which reforested and undisturbed forest soils absorb carbon from the atmosphere. They found that in the next 100 years, already existing reforestation in the country could help topsoil absorb an additional 2 billion tons of carbon. (Image by Argonne National Laboratory.)
Locked in a forest

Argonne researchers have found that in the next 100 years, already existing reforestation in the country could help topsoil absorb an additional 2 billion tons of carbon. Their work is detailed in a recent study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Turbocharging engine design

Researchers at the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory have moved the development process into the passing lane. For the first time, Argonne’s scientists and engineers pinpointed engine designs for a given fuel using the Mira supercomputer at the heart of the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF), a DOE Office of Science User Facility.

The soil microbial carbon pump (MCP) moves carbon derived from microbial anabolism into soil where it can become stabilized by the entombing effect. The yin-yang symbol represents a key part of soil MCP that links aboveground vegetation to belowground soil, and creates a sense of movement to illustrate that the movement is driven, but driven differently, by fungi and bacteria.

The outsized role of soil microbes

Three scientists have proposed a new approach to better understand the role of soil organic matter in long-term carbon storage and its response to changes in global climate and atmospheric chemistry.
