Ice Sheet Model Reveals Most Comprehensive Projections for West Antarctica’s Future

August 18, 2015

A new international study is the first to use a high-resolution, large-scale computer model to estimate how much ice the West Antarctic Ice Sheet could lose over the next couple of centuries, and how much that could add to sea-level rise.

New Mathematics Advances the Frontier of Macromolecular Imaging

August 10, 2015

Berkeley Lab researchers have introduced new mathematical theory and an algorithm, which they call "Multi-tiered iterative phasing (M-TIP)," to solve the reconstruction problem from fluctuation X-ray scattering data. This approach is an important step in unlocking the door to new advances in biophysics and has the promise of ushering in new tools to help solve some of the most challenging problems in the life sciences.
