Scientists from the Labs collaborate with university researchers to improve climate models by studying soil and gas samples.
Sandia soil scientist studies climate change impacts
In an interview with Umakant Mishra, he shares about his research on the terrestrial carbon cycle, ways Sandia can help address the climate crisis and advice for recruiting others to advance climate security.
Solar thermochemical process produces low-carbon ammonia
Sandia scientists explore making ammonia with little more than sun, air and hydrogen.
Improving hydrogen safety codes and standards
Sandia researcher earns a DOE award for his work that advances the safe deployment of hydrogen technologies.
Reinventing offshore wind turbines
Engineers at Sandia imagine a smaller, less expensive floating turbine and develop modeling software to set their idea in motion.
Leading from the front
Sandia New Mexico and California use enough electricity annually to power 40,000 houses for a year. An energy management team at the Labs introduces site sustainability initiatives that decrease electricity consumption.
Propelling wind energy innovation
A novel technology at Sandia, called Twistact, eliminates reliance on rare-earth magnets for large-scale wind turbines.
Community Involvement grant aids scientific discovery among young learners
The Labs sponsors the newly renovated Animal Discovery Zone at The Lawrence Hall of Science, which features riveting animal photos from National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore.
