Cloudy with a Chance of Particles
August 25 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
For the first time ever, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is opening its doors and inviting the public to a series of free, live, virtual tours of numerous labs on its Richland campus. Researchers from across PNNL will be your hosts as you discover the spaces and instruments behind our science and impact. Learn about nuclear explosion monitoring, the science and hardware behind machine learning and artificial intelligence, our work in nuclear energy and environmental management, and so much more. Visit the Glass Lab at our Applied Process Engineering Laboratory, get a behind-the-scenes look at grid operations in our Electricity Infrastructure Operations Center, and get a look at one of five nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers in the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory.
All tours are one-hour and accessible via Zoom. During the tour, you are encouraged to submit questions to your hosts (researchers at PNNL) via Zoom’s chat function. The tours are open to all ages.
Please see the tour description and registration link below:
Understanding particles, clouds, and their influence on Earth’s climate requires specialized facilities and field study. Explore PNNL’s active research in this area with two stops in the Atmospheric Measurement Laboratory: the space where researchers prepare and test meteorological radars for worldwide deployment to support the U.S. Department of Energy Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility and the Environmental Chamber where we reproduce and study atmospheric processes.
