We strive to:
- Communicate clearly with sponsors, program offices and colleagues regarding results and ideas.
- Identify key gaps in knowledge, facilities and equipment necessary to meet challenges of today and tomorrow, and invest to fill those gaps.
- Publish our findings when appropriate and participate in discourse with the broad scientific community.
- Provide mentoring, training and career development opportunities for employees, students and postdoctoral researchers.
- Promote open communication between management and employees.
- Value the importance of the breadth of experiences, backgrounds and origins that our employees bring to the division in the challenges we tackle.
Who We Are
The Earth and Environmental Sciences Division is the intellectual home of Earth, atmosphere, hydrology and ecology disciplines at the Laboratory. Our three groups:
- Energy and Natural Resources Security — We develop and apply a range of high-performance computational methods and tools plus perform fundamental research in Earth science projects to securing greenhouse gases, provide cleaner energy and support environmental, ecosystem and waterway health. Our interconnected teams provide transformational solutions.
- National Security Earth Science — We develop geophysical techniques to probe the solid earth and use near-real-time science to enable actionable decision-making for the national security mission.
- Climate, Ecosystems, and Environmental Science — We collect high-value data from observation, experiment and analytical measurements to inform process modeling, climate and environmental mitigation and provide resilience strategies to support national security.
