Three PNNL scientists selected for membership in the Washington State Academy of Sciences.
Release Date: 7/21/2014
PNNL scientists will present research on carbon sequestration at shale gas sites, water needs for energy production and climate-induced changes in microbes at the 2013 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting, Dec. 9-13.
