Ultraprecise Measurements in XXLExternal link

The Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument, called DESI, has an ambitious goal: to scan more than 35 million galaxies in the night sky to track the expansion of our universe and the growth of its large-scale structure over the last 10 billion years. Using DESI — a project led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory — scientists hope to create a 3-D map of a third of the night sky that is more accurate and precise than any other. Read More »

Study: Carbon-Hungry Plants Impede Growth Rate of Atmospheric CO2External link

New findings of a multi-institutional study led by a scientist from the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) suggest the rate at which CO2 is accumulating in the atmosphere has plateaued in recent years because Earth’s vegetation is grabbing more carbon from the air than in previous decades.
