SPOT Suite Transforms Beamline Science

Scientists from Berkeley Lab’s ALS, CRD and NERSC are teaming up to create new tools for reducing, managing, analyzing and visualizing beamline data. To facilitate this new workflow they tapped ESnet engineers to set up data transfer nodes between three ALS beamlines and NERSC. > » READ MORE

Weathering the Flood of Big Data in Climate Research

Big Data, it seems, is everywhere, usually characterized as a Big Problem. But researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory are adept at accessing, sharing, moving and analyzing massive scientific datasets. At a July 14-16 workshop focused on climate science, Berkeley Lab experts shared their expertise with other scientists working with big datasets. > » READ MORE

Wolf-Rayet Becomes a Supernova

For the first time ever, scientists have direct confirmation that a Wolf-Rayet star—sitting 360 million light years away in the Bootes constellation—died in a violent explosion known as a Type IIb supernova. This work was possible thanks to the iPTF survey, which uses ESnet. > » READ MORE
