  • Tracking microbial metabolism in the oceanMarine microbes play fundamental roles in global biogeochemical cycles through the fixation and remineralization of carbon and nitrogen. During their growth cycles, microbes release metabolites into the complex dissolved organic carbon pool, establishing biochemical connections among members of the microbial loop. Metabolites include important biological compounds such as vitamins, osmolytes, metabolic precursors, amino ...

  • Insects: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
    Experts estimate that some 10 quintillion (10,000,000,000,000,000,000) insects crawl, burrow, swim, and fly on Earth. Roughly 80% of all the world's species are members of the class Insecta! Our speaker, entomologist Vernard Lewis, will present the latest research on the biology, detection, and control of three particularly villainous house guests: ants, termites, ...

  • Measuring and modeling of Ostwald Ripening in Residually Trapped CO2Despite its major influence on storage capacity, CO2 plume migration rate, and rates of CO2 dissolution and mineralization, residual trapping remains perhaps the least understood of the trapping mechanisms following CO2 injection in geologic formations. Whereas conventional multi-phase flow models assume that the residually trapped non-wetting phase is permanently immobilized, multiple physiochemical mechanisms exist ...

  • World Marine Fog Climatology Based Upon Ship Observations for 1950-2007The world distribution of fog is presented from ship weather observations over a 58 year period. For the world ocean excluding polar areas, fog is an infrequent event with the median occurrence 0.1 % of the time. Greater fog occurrence is concentrated in three distinct areas: NW Oceans, marginal seas ...

  • Energy-Efficient RISC-V Processors in 28nm FDSOI
    This talk presents the design of a series of energy-efficient microprocessors done by a group of students at UC Berkeley. They are based on an open and free Berkeley RISC-V architecture and implement several techniques for operation in a very wide voltage range utilizing 28nm FDSOI. To enable agile dynamic ...

  • Greening the GrayOur paved-over cities are being slowly converted to green spongy habitats. How do rain gardens, trees, and soils benefit water, wildlife, and people? Hear about the history and potential from Peter Schultze-Allen, who brought “low impact development” to Emeryville’s legacy of heavy industry and pollution.
