Argonne CNM Highlight: Understanding Nanocrystal Shapes through Simulation  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Understanding Nanocrystal Shapes through Simulation Understanding Nanocrystal Shapes through Simulation A. Barnard Anatase Nanocrystals Nanoparticles of various materials have been found to possess a number of remarkable properties that depend upon their finite size. In many cases however, these desirable properties may also be a function of the morphology of the nanoparticle. Experimental evidence suggests that the shape of nanomaterials is affected by such factors as size, temperature, pressure, and the chemical environment. Observations of this type invite the question: Can the shape of nanoparticles be controlled, or do thermodynamic processes rule at the nanoscale? Researchers at the Virtual Fab Lab are using theoretical models and high-performance computing to investigate the physical principles responsible for the shape of nanocrystals and ways in which they may be manipulated. Calculations involving isolated nanoparticles (even small structures such as the anatase nanocrystals shown here) can be very computationally intensive, especially when trying to simulate the effects of particles in solution. It may also be difficult to determine whether the results of such calculations are archetypal or are representative only of the particular prototype structure. By developing a new theory for the phase stability of nanomaterials as a function of size and shape, we can eliminate much of this ambiguity. Ab initio computational methods are used to obtain a set of key parameters for the model that may then be used to examine how shape affects processes such as phase transitions. Alternatively, the model may be used to determine the experimental conditions necessary to achieve a particular shape that may be required for a specific application.

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

0 0 Highlights International Oil Markets International Oil Supply: This forecast assumes that OPEC 10 (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries excluding Iraq) crude oil production will be 25.2 million barrels per day in the second quarter, 0.9 million barrels per day above first quarter production levels (Figure 1). This is about 0.5 million barrels per day above their production target of 24.69 million barrels per day. The forecast then assumes another 0.1 million barrels per day increase in OPEC 10 crude oil production in the third quarter and an additional 0.5 million barrel per day increase in the fourth quarter of 2000. If OPEC fails to increase production in the third or fourth quarters of 2000 as assumed in this forecast, higher oil prices would be expected.

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

June 2000 June 2000 Highlights Overview Renewed strength in world oil prices following a short-lived slump in April and a dramatic rally in domestic natural gas prices in response to weak storage injection performance and general worries about near-term gas supplies has prompted us to sharply increase expected levels for energy prices in the short term. Given our general expectations about growth in world oil demand and supply, the oil price adjustment for this Outlook is a shift in the expected level and not a move away from the conviction that prices should trend downward from current levels by year end. Meanwhile, as higher crude oil prices have intervened, and as generally low inventories have resulted in some greater-than- expected tightness in gasoline markets, particularly in the Midwest, we now

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

January 2010 January 2010 1 January 2010 Short-Term Energy Outlook January 12, 2010 Release Highlights This edition of the Short-Term Energy Outlook is the first to include monthly forecasts through December 2011. EIA expects that the price of West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil, which averaged $62 per barrel in 2009, will average about $80 and $84 per barrel in 2010 and 2011, respectively. EIA's forecast assumes that U.S. real gross domestic product (GDP) grows by 2.0 percent in 2010 and by 2.7 percent in 2011, while world oil-consumption-weighted real GDP grows by 2.5 percent and 3.7 percent in 2010 and 2011, respectively. Escalating crude oil prices drive the annual average regular-grade gasoline retail price from $2.35 per gallon in 2009 to $2.84 in 2010 and $2.96 in 2011.

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

0 0 Highlights International Oil Markets World Oil Prices - How High Will They Go? Our forecast this month is that the world oil price should remain high for most of the year as inventories are expected to remain low, even with an assumed increase in OPEC production of 1 million barrels per day beginning in April. The average cost per barrel of crude oil imported into the United States and delivered to U.S. refiners (the benchmark price used in this forecast) is expected to increase from $26.65 per barrel in the first quarter of 2000 to $27.65 per barrel in the second quarter this year. After that we expect a gradual falling off throughout the rest of 2000 and 2001 to end between $22.25 and $22.50 per barrel by the fourth quarter of 2001 (Figure 1).

Scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory found that these "giant" particles have a larger-than-expected impact on the amount of sunlight reflected away from Earth, by as much as 45 percent. They also showed that particles larger than one micron (0.000039 inch) occur much more frequently than expected, up to 85 percent of the time.

(STEO) (STEO) Highlights  Falling crude oil prices contributed to a decline in the U.S. regular gasoline retail price from a year-to-date high of $3.78 per gallon on February 25 to $3.52 per gallon on April 29. EIA expects the regular gasoline price will average $3.53 per gallon over the summer (April through September), down $0.10 per gallon from last month's STEO. The annual average regular gasoline retail price is projected to decline from $3.63 per gallon in 2012 to $3.50 per gallon in 2013 and to $3.39 per gallon in 2014.

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

December, 1998 ( Released December 7, 1998) December, 1998 ( Released December 7, 1998) Highlights Overview Several developments in recent weeks have combined to weaken energy demand and prices in the United States. The first two months of what we normally call the "heating season" have been short on one key component - heating demand. Generally speaking, heating degree-days fell below normal across the United States in October and November. Based on early observations and the recent short-range forecast, we expect that below-normal heating demand is likely for December as well (Figure 1). With demand sputtering, heating fuel stocks remain high and prices remain low. This is particularly evident with respect to the U.S. natural gas market. Expectations for wellhead gas prices consistently above $2.00 per thousand cubic feet may have been all

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

1998 1998 Highlights Oil Prices/Supply The recent production cuts announced by OPEC and other producers have stabilized prices in the $12 to $13 per barrel range, but the market is a long way from achieving the $17 "target price" being talked about in OPEC circles. Prior to the recent cuts, oil prices had been near $11.50 to $ 12 per barrel. Unless prices rebound by October, the upcoming winter heating season may not be sufficient to increase prices given the current stock overhang. Our current view is that prices will remain low with a gradual increase throughout the next year where we see the oil market finally coming into balance. Even though world oil demand is forecast to recover significantly in 1999, only a "moderate" price recovery is forecast because of the inventory overhang still remaining.

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

July 8, 1999 July 8, 1999 Highlights World Oil Markets/Prices Prices. Despite a substantial increase in spot prices for crude oil at the very end of June (Figure 1), we have not significantly changed our crude price forecast for this update. We have raised our price forecast slightly for the next couple of months (Figure 2). However, the story is essentially the same: the combination of demand and supply changes will probably prevent even a normal seasonal increase in world oil inventories this year, resulting in a net inventory draw averaging over 800,000 barrels per day for all of 1999. Prices are expected to remain more or less flat until the end of the summer when world demand begins to exhibit some of the larger year-over-year increases expected for 1999. From that point, we see prices rising gradually through 2000 as

1998 1998 Highlights World Oil Markets The large oil inventory build-up that occurred in 1997 and the first half of 1998 is expected to keep a lid on how high oil prices might increase from their historically low levels. However, the oil production cuts pledged by major oil producers in June, along with some expected recovery in oil demand in 1999, should allow the average annual world oil price (defined as the average price U.S. refiners pay for imported crude oil) to rise from an average of $12.51 per barrel in 1998 to $13.65 per barrel next year (see Figure 1 and Table). Beginning in the second half of 1998, and carrying through 1999, the world oil market should see a more "typical" oil inventory pattern, with drawdowns from oil inventories of approximately 1 million barrels per day in the fourth and first

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

9 9 Year in Review I nternational crude oil prices experienced notable in- creases during 1999, as fundamental market condi- tions changed significantly over the year. Throughout the first two months of the year, prices languished as several factors including abundant stocks of both crude oil and finished products, slow demand, and warm winter temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere dominated market trends. Lackluster demand for all petroleum products in key markets helped sustain glutted inventories and prevented any meaningful re- covery for prices. Consequently, refining margins shrank to unprofitable levels and led to reduced refin- ery runs. The cutback in runs decreased draws on crude oil stocks, which in turn affected prices. Plentiful wellhead production, particularly in Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) nations, exac- erbated the effects of

The current economic problems in Asia and Russia have lowered projections relative to last year’s report. In the reference case projections for this International Energy Outlook 1999 (IEO99), world energy consumption reaches 612 quadrillion British thermal units (Btu) by 2020 (Figure 2 and Table 1)—an increase of 65 percent over the 24-year projection period. The IEO99 projection for the world’s energy demand in 2020 is about 4 percent (almost 30 quadrillion Btu) lower than last year’s projection. The downward revision is based on events in two parts of the world: Asia and Russia. In Asia, the economic crisis that began in early 1997 persisted throughout 1998, as economic

Quadrillion Quadrillion Btu Highlights: Annual Energy Review 1994 At the halfway mark of this century, coal was the leading source of energy produced in the United States. Now, as we approach the end of the 20th century, coal is still the leading source of energy produced in this country (Figure 1). Between those points of time, however, dramatic changes occurred in the composition of our Nation's energy production. For example, crude oil and natural gas plant liquids production overtook coal production in the early 1950s. That source was matched by natural gas for a few years in the mid-1970s, and then, in the early 1980s, coal regained its prominence. After 1985, crude oil production suffered a nearly steady annual decline. While the fossil fuels moved up and down in their indi-

March 2007 March 2007 1 March 2007 Short-Term Energy Outlook March 6, 2007 Release (Next Update: April 10, 2007) Highlights * World oil markets tightened in recent weeks in response to production cuts by members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and the return of cold winter weather in North America. February's cold weather and higher demand for heating fuels reduced petroleum inventories (both crude and product) more than expected and raised spot prices for crude oil and natural gas, which had fallen in January. * Average monthly motor gasoline prices are expected to increase by nearly 40 cents per gallon from February ($2.28 per gallon) through June, peaking at $2.67

February 2012 February 2012 1 Independent Statistics & Analysis U.S. Energy Information Administration February 2012 Short-Term Energy Outlook February 7, 2012 Release Highlights  EIA expects the price of West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil to average about $100 per barrel in 2012, almost $6 per barrel higher than the average price last year. Based on recent futures and options data, the market believes there is about a one-in-fifteen chance that the average WTI price in June 2012 will exceed $125 per barrel, and about a one-in-fifty chance that it would exceed $140 per barrel. For 2013, EIA expects WTI prices to continue to rise,

Recent price developments in world oil markets and economic recovery in Southeast Asia have altered projections relative to last year’s report. In the reference case projections for the International Energy Outlook 2000 (IEO2000), world energy consumption increases by 60 percent over a 23-year forecast period, from 1997 to 2020. Energy use worldwide increases from 380 quadrillion British thermal units (Btu) in 1997 to 608 quadrillion Btu in 2020 (Figure 2 and Table 1). Many developments in 1999 are reflected in this year’s outlook. Shifting short-term world oil markets, the beginnings

Fast Proton Hopping in Ice Fast Proton Hopping in Ice Fast Proton Hopping in Ice (Ih) Confirmed by Quasi-Elastic Neutron Scattering "With these results, we have an experimental proof of fast proton hopping in ice," researcher says Research Contact: Alexander Kolesnikov June 2011, Written by Agatha Bardoel Protons (positive hydrogen ions) in an ice lattice have been "seen" to fast hop from one water molecule to another, using quasi-elastic neutron scattering at the SNS Backscattering Spectrometer, BASIS. This fundamental phenomenon that occurs at very low temperatures has important consequences for future investigations of proton conductivity in solids.

Highlights from BNL-RHIC-2012  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Recent highlights from Brookhaven National Laboratory and the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) are reviewed and discussed in the context of the discovery of the strongly interacting Quark Gluon Plasma (sQGP) at RHIC in 2005 as confirmed by results from the CERN-LHC Pb+Pb program. Outstanding RHIC machine operation in 2012 with 3-dimensional stochastic cooling and a new EBIS ion source enabled measurements with Cu+Au, U+U, for which multiplicity distributions are shown, as well as with polarized p-p collisions. Differences of the physics and goals of p-p versus A+A are discussed leading to a review of RHIC results on pi0 suppression in Au+Au collisions and comparison to LHC Pb+Pb results in the same range 5 30 GeV. Improved measurements of direct photon production and correlation with charged particles at RHIC are shown, including the absence of a low pT (thermal) photon enhancement in d+Au collisions. Attempts to understand the apparent equality of the energy loss of light and heavy quarks in the QGP by means of direct measurements of charm and beauty particles at both RHIC and LHC are discussed.

Understanding Availability  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This paper addresses a simple, yet fundamental question in the design of peer-to-peer systems: What does it mean when we say "availability" and how does this understanding impact the engineering of practical systems? We argue that existing measurements and models do not capture the complex time-varying nature of availability in today's peer-to-peer environments. Further, we show that unforeseen methodological shortcomings have dramatically biased previous analyses of this phenomenon. As the basis of our study, we empirically characterize the availability of a large peer-to-peer system over a period of 7 days, analyze the dependence of the underlying availability distributions, measure host turnover in the system, and discuss how these results may affect the design of high-availability peer-to-peer services.

FY 1996 Congressional budget request: Budget highlights  

SciTech Connect

The FY 1996 budget presentation is organized by the Department`s major business lines. An accompanying chart displays the request for new budget authority. The report compares the budget request for FY 1996 with the appropriated FY 1995 funding levels displayed on a comparable basis. The FY 1996 budget represents the first year of a five year plan in which the Department will reduce its spending by $15.8 billion in budget authority and by $14.1 billion in outlays. FY 1996 is a transition year as the Department embarks on its multiyear effort to do more with less. The Budget Highlights are presented by business line; however, the fifth business line, Economic Productivity, which is described in the Policy Overview section, cuts across multiple organizational missions, funding levels and activities and is therefore included in the discussion of the other four business lines.

Realizing a Clean Energy Future: Highlights of NREL Analysis (Brochure)  

SciTech Connect

Profound energy system transformation is underway. In Hawaiian mythology, Maui set out to lasso the sun in order to capture its energy. He succeeded. That may have been the most dramatic leap forward in clean energy systems that the world has known. Until now. Today, another profound transformation is underway. A combination of forces is taking us from a carbon-centric, inefficient energy system to one that draws from diverse energy sources - including the sun. NREL analysis is helping guide energy systems policy and investment decisions through this transformation. This brochure highlights NREL analysis accomplishments in the context of four thematic storylines.

Understanding the Autophagy Pathway  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Understanding the Autophagy Pathway Understanding the Autophagy Pathway Understanding the Autophagy Pathway Print Monday, 13 February 2012 14:22 Autophagy is a process in which a double-membrane structure called an 'autophagosome' engulfs portions of a cell's cytoplasm, including organelles. The contents of the autophagosome are then directed for degradation in the lysosome, an organelle that breaks down waste and debris in cells so the raw materials can be reused. Recent research at the ALS clarifies key aspects of enzyme activity in this process. Autophagy is key to maintaining cellular equilibrium, or homeostasis; however, dysregulation of autophagy has been implicated in several diseases. Central to autophagy is a ubiquitin-like protein (Ubl) system called Atg8. In general, Ubls serve as molecular tags, altering the fate of their targets. In autophagy, Atg8 is activated by its E1 enzyme Atg7, then handed off to its E2 enzyme Atg3, and finally attached to a lipid moiety (phosphatidylethanolamine) within the expanding autophagosome.

Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update (EIA)

8 8 Summary Highlights Overview Throughout 2008, U.S. natural gas prices increased across all sectors compared with 2007 levels and mirrored significant increases in the price of oil. Prices also displayed relatively greater variation between the summer and winter months. Prices in most sectors peaked in June and July, before declining between 25 and 45 percent by the end of the year. Although the 2008 hurricane season was the most active since 2005, natural gas prices showed relatively little response to Hurricanes Gustav and Ike. Total marketed production rose for the third consecutive year to the highest level since 1974. This substantial growth was largely because of a 13-percent increase in Texas. Production in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) declined for the seventh consecutive year, dropping 16.9 percent compared with

Coal-ash spills highlight ongoing risk to ecosystems  

SciTech Connect

Two recent large-scale spills of coal combustion waste have highlighted the old problem of handling the enormous quantity of solid waste produced by coal. Both spills happened at power plants run by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). In December 2008 a holding pond for coal ash collapsed at a power plant in Kingstom, Tenn., releasing coal-ash sludge onto farmland and into rivers: in January 2009 a break in a pipe removing water from a holding pond for gypsum caused a spill at Widows Creek Fossil Plant in Stevenson, Ala. The article discusses the toxic outcome of such disasters on ecosystems, quoting work by Willaim Hopkins at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and recommendations and reports of the US EPA. 2 photos.

Past, present and future highlights in top and higgs physics from the CDF experiment  

SciTech Connect

The 1992-1995 running of the Fermilab Tevatron (the so-called Run 1) ended with many important physics goals accomplished, including the discovery of the top quark, and the anticipation of many further questions be to answered in the future. In March 2002, after many detector upgrades by both the CDF and D0 experiments, and significant upgrades of the accelerator itself, the Tevatron Run 2 began (after a detector commissioning run) with the ultimate goal of discovering the Higgs boson. Here, we will highlight some important Run 1 results from CDF in the areas of top quark and Higgs boson physics, show some preliminary studies from Run 2, and give some expectations of what Run 2 will ultimately provide to our understanding of matter.

Understanding Lustre Internals  

SciTech Connect

Lustre was initiated and funded, almost a decade ago, by the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) Office of Science and National Nuclear Security Administration laboratories to address the need for an open source, highly-scalable, high-performance parallel filesystem on by then present and future supercomputing platforms. Throughout the last decade, it was deployed over numerous medium-to-large-scale supercomputing platforms and clusters, and it performed and met the expectations of the Lustre user community. As it stands at the time of writing this document, according to the Top500 list, 15 of the top 30 supercomputers in the world use Lustre filesystem. This report aims to present a streamlined overview on how Lustre works internally at reasonable details including relevant data structures, APIs, protocols and algorithms involved for Lustre version 1.6 source code base. More importantly, it tries to explain how various components interconnect with each other and function as a system. Portions of this report are based on discussions with Oak Ridge National Laboratory Lustre Center of Excellence team members and portions of it are based on our own understanding of how the code works. We, as the authors team bare all responsibilities for all errors and omissions in this document. We can only hope it helps current and future Lustre users and Lustre code developers as much as it helped us understanding the Lustre source code and its internal workings.

Understanding Aprun Use Patterns  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

On the Cray XT, aprun is the command to launch an application to a set of compute nodes reserved through the Application Level Placement Scheduler (ALPS). At the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), interactive aprun is disabled. That is, invocations of aprun have to go through the batch system. Batch scripts can and often do contain several apruns which either use subsets of the reserved nodes in parallel, or use all reserved nodes in consecutive apruns. In order to better understand how NERSC users run on the XT, it is necessary to associate aprun information with jobs. It is surprisingly more challenging than it sounds. In this paper, we describe those challenges and how we solved them to produce daily per-job reports for completed apruns. We also describe additional uses of the data, e.g. adjusting charging policy accordingly or associating node failures with jobs/users, and plans for enhancements.

Damping of acoustic vibrations in gold nanoparticles Damping of acoustic vibrations in gold nanoparticles Nanopatterning of STO Vibrations in nanostructures offer applications in molecular-scale biological sensing and ultrasensitive mass detection. To approach single-atom sensing, it is necessary to reduce the dimensions of the structures to the nanometer scale while preserving long-lived vibrations. This requires an understanding of how vibrations in nanoscale objects are damped - or lose their energy to the fluid surroundings and within themselves. Researchers have used fast laser pulses to produce and probe high-frequency vibrations in metal nanoparticles. However, significant variations in particle dimensions complicate measurements. By studying bipyramid-shaped gold nanoparticles with highly uniform sizes

The Scientific Data Management Center: Available Technologies and Highlights  

SciTech Connect

Managing scientific data has been identified by the scientific community as one of the most important emerging needs because of the sheer volume and increasing complexity of data being collected. Effectively generating, managing, and analyzing this information requires a comprehensive, end-to-end approach to data management that encompasses all of the stages from the initial data acquisition to the final analysis of the data. Based on community input, we have identified three significant requirements. First, more efficient access to storage systems is needed. In particular, parallel file system and I/O system improvements are needed to write and read large volumes of data without slowing a simulation. Second, scientists require technologies to facilitate better understanding of their data, in particular the ability to effectively perform complex data analysis and searches over extremely large data sets. Furthermore, exploratory analysis requires techniques for efficiently selecting subsets of the data. Third, generating the data, collecting and storing the results, keeping track of data provenance, data post-processing, and analysis of results is a tedious, fragmented process. Tools for automation of this process in a robust, tractable, and recoverable fashion are required to enhance scientific exploration.

Sustainable Energy Resources for Consumers (SERC) Vermont Highlight (Fact Sheet)  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Case study on Vermont's innovative strategy for helping low-income families save energy through its Sustainable Energy Resources for Consumers (SERC) program. The DOE Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) granted Vermont to give its weatherization clients access to solar energy systems and one-on-one assistance from energy efficiency coaches to help clients achieve meaningful and long-lasting reductions in their energy bills. Vermont-SERC is administered by the Vermont Office of Economic Opportunity and is carried out by five local weatherization agencies. The purpose of the program is to identify technologies and new approaches-in this case, solar energy and energy efficiency coaches-that can improve weatherization services to low-income clients. The program selects households that have previously received weatherization services. This has several advantages. First, the clients already understand how weatherization works and are willing to strive for additional energy savings. Second, the weatherization agencies are working with clients who have previously had weatherization and therefore have complete energy usage data from utility bills collected during the first energy upgrade installation. This allows the agencies to select the best potential candidates for solar energy. Agencies have existing knowledge of the homes and can pre-screen them for potential structural problems or lack of south-facing exposure.

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Catalysis Highlights for FY2007  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

To reduce the nations dependence on imported oil, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and other federal and private agencies are investing in understanding catalysis. This report focuses on catalysis research conducted by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and its collaborators. Using sophisticated instruments in DOEs Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory, a national scientific user facility, research was conducted to answer key questions related to the nations use of automotive fuels. Research teams investigated how hydrogen can be safely stored and efficiently released, critical questions to use this alternative fuel. Further, they are answering key questions to design molecular catalysts to control the transfer of hydrogen atoms, hydrides, and protons important to hydrogen production. In dealing with todays fuels, researchers examined adsorption of noxious nitrous oxides in automotive exhaust. Beyond automotive fuel, researchers worked on catalysts to harness solar power. These catalysts include the rutile and anatase forms of titanium dioxide. Basic research was conducted on designing catalysts for these and other applications. Our scientists examined how to build catalysts with the desired properties atom by atom and molecule by molecule. In addition, this report contains brief descriptions of the outstanding accomplishments of catalysis experts at PNNL.

Understanding Nitrogen Fixation  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

The purpose of our program is to explore fundamental chemistry relevant to the discovery of energy efficient methods for the conversion of atmospheric nitrogen (N{sub 2}) into more value-added nitrogen-containing organic molecules. Such transformations are key for domestic energy security and the reduction of fossil fuel dependencies. With DOE support, we have synthesized families of zirconium and hafnium dinitrogen complexes with elongated and activated N-N bonds that exhibit rich N{sub 2} functionalization chemistry. Having elucidated new methods for N-H bond formation from dihydrogen, C-H bonds and Broensted acids, we have since turned our attention to N-C bond construction. These reactions are particularly important for the synthesis of amines, heterocycles and hydrazines with a range of applications in the fine and commodity chemicals industries and as fuels. One recent highlight was the discovery of a new N{sub 2} cleavage reaction upon addition of carbon monoxide which resulted in the synthesis of an important fertilizer, oxamide, from the diatomics with the two strongest bonds in chemistry. Nitrogen-carbon bonds form the backbone of many important organic molecules, especially those used in the fertilizer and pharamaceutical industries. During the past year, we have continued our work in the synthesis of hydrazines of various substitution patterns, many of which are important precursors for heterocycles. In most instances, the direct functionalization of N{sub 2} offers a more efficient synthetic route than traditional organic methods. In addition, we have also discovered a unique CO-induced N{sub 2} bond cleavage reaction that simultaneously cleaves the N-N bond of the metal dinitrogen compound and assembles new C-C bond and two new N-C bonds. Treatment of the CO-functionalized core with weak Broensted acids liberated oxamide, H{sub 2}NC(O)C(O)NH{sub 2}, an important slow release fertilizer that is of interest to replace urea in many applications. The synthesis of ammonia, NH{sub 3}, from its elements, H{sub 2} and N{sub 2}, via the venerable Haber-Bosch process is one of the most significant technological achievements of the past century. Our research program seeks to discover new transition metal reagents and catalysts to disrupt the strong N {triple_bond} N bond in N{sub 2} and create new, fundamental chemical linkages for the construction of molecules with application as fuels, fertilizers and fine chemicals. With DOE support, our group has discovered a mild method for ammonia synthesis in solution as well as new methods for the construction of nitrogen-carbon bonds directly from N{sub 2}. Ideally these achievements will evolve into more efficient nitrogen fixation schemes that circumvent the high energy demands of industrial ammonia synthesis. Industrially, atmospheric nitrogen enters the synthetic cycle by the well-established Haber-Bosch process whereby N{sub 2} is hydrogenated to ammonia at high temperature and pressure. The commercialization of this reaction represents one of the greatest technological achievements of the 20th century as Haber-Bosch ammonia is responsible for supporting approximately 50% of the world's population and serves as the source of half of the nitrogen in the human body. The extreme reaction conditions required for an economical process have significant energy consequences, consuming 1% of the world's energy supply mostly in the form of pollution-intensive coal. Moreover, industrial H{sub 2} synthesis via the water gas shift reaction and the steam reforming of methane is fossil fuel intensive and produces CO{sub 2} as a byproduct. New synthetic methods that promote this thermodynamically favored transformation ({Delta}G{sup o} = -4.1 kcal/mol) under milder conditions or completely obviate it are therefore desirable. Most nitrogen-containing organic molecules are derived from ammonia (and hence rely on the Haber-Bosch and H{sub 2} synthesis processes) and direct synthesis from atmospheric nitrogen could, in principle, be more energy-efficient. This is particularly attractive giv

Vogelmann, 2006: A climatologically significant aerosol longwave indirect effect in the Arctic, Nature, 439, 26 January, 453-456, doi:10.1038/nature04449 In a process known as the first aerosol indirect effect, enhanced aerosol concentrations cause the droplets in a cloud to be smaller and more numerous within a cloud of fixed water amount. This study found that this process can make many clouds more opaque and emit more thermal energy to the surface. The warming of the Arctic climate and decreases in sea ice area and thickness observed over recent decades are believed to result from
