Virtual ExhibiTOR Booth

Earth & Environmental Sciences Area at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s (Berkeley Lab) Earth & Environmental Sciences Area is a premier Earth sciences research organization where scientists are tackling some of the most pressing environmental and energy challenges of the 21st Century in order to enable sustainable stewardship and judicious use of the Earth’s resources. With the breadth of expertise of integrated teams offered by the Climate and Ecosystem Sciences and the Energy Geosciences Divisions, EESA’s vision is to lead the nation in solving complex environment and energy challenges.

At EESA’s virtual exhibit booth website, visitors can find information about current job and internship opportunities, take virtual tours of some of our facilities and labs, and read about current areas of research spanning a wide range of Earth science.

Take a fly-though tour of Berkeley Lab

Tour Berkeley Lab from above in this video, which uses drone footage taken at the Lab in 2020. The video shows the historic, domed Advanced Light Source building that appears in the lab logo; the Molecular Foundry that encompasses nanoscience research; Shyh Wang Hall, which houses the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) supercomputers; the rotating FLEXLAB building, which is a test bed for energy efficiency in buildings; and the Integrative Genomics Building, which has a focus on plant and microbial genomics research and is the newest addition to the more than 100 buildings on the Lab’s 200-acre site.
