Subsurface Biogeochemical Research Program

Former Programmatic Component

SciDAC ProjectsSciDAC

SBR has partnered with the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) on projects of mutual interest such as the simulation of groundwater reactive transport processes on high-performance computers under the SciDAC (Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing) program.

The SciDAC program was created to bring together many of the nation's top researchers to develop new computational methods for tackling some of the most challenging scientific problems. The BER SciDAC partnership efforts focus on two main research thrusts: climate and environmental sciences and biological systems. Partnerships in climate and environmental sciences aim to advance the simulation and predictive capabilities of state-of-science climate modeling and provide improved models for better understanding the movement of subsurface contamination. Partnerships in biological systems seek to develop new methods for modeling complex biological systems, including molecular complexes, metabolic and signaling pathways, individual cells, and, ultimately, interacting organisms and ecosystems.

SBR program-supported SciDAC-II projects.

SBR Research featured in SciDAC Review

SBR's SciDAC research was featured in the Spring 2008 issue of the ASCR SciDAC Review magazine in the article, Science for Problems Under the Surface.
