Earth scientists talk TOUGH

By Mike Wooldridge,

About 100 earth scientists from around the world came to LBL last week to talk TOUGH. The Earth Sciences Division held a three-day workshop devoted to a popular fluid simulation program developed at the Lab--Transport of Unsaturated Groundwater and Heat, or TOUGH.

ESD's Karsten Pruess, the conference organizer, created the first version of TOUGH in the early 1980s for tracking the flow of water and vapor in geothermal reservoirs. Since then, the program has been modified for many other earth science specialties. Versions of TOUGH now model the movement of water, oil, solvents, toxic waste, heat--practically anything that flows underground and is of interest to scientists and engineers.

The conference was a chance for earth science researchers from a wide variety of disciplines to share their experiences. "It's all about dialogue," Pruess says. "The underlying physics of fluid flow in porous media is basically the same across different applications. A fluid doesn't care whether it's part of an environmental investigation or part of a geothermal study."

One advantage of programs such as TOUGH is that researchers can conveniently and inexpensively study the "what ifs" of a project. Scientists working on nuclear waste clean-up, for instance, can model a toxic site and try out different strategies for cleaning it up, all on a computer.

TOUGH simulation can also be key in site assessment. The software has been particularly useful at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, where DOE plans to construct a major facility for nuclear waste storage. "Even with all the bore holes drilled and samples taken, much of Yucca Mountain still isn't directly accessible to scientists, and never will be," says Pruess. "Numerical simulation plays a very large role in understanding the site."

In addition to the software's role in nuclear waste isolation and environmental clean-up, the conference also looked at TOUGH simulation in oil exploration, mining engineering, and geothermal engineering.

Proposals sought for FY 1996 Lab-directed R&D program

Director Charles Shank has issued the Call for Proposals for the FY 1996 Laboratory Directed Research and Development Program (LDRD). This program provides support for projects in forefront areas of science that can enrich Laboratory R&D capabilities and achievements.

For FY 1996, an emphasis will be given to supporting new R&D initiatives which position the Laboratory for leadership in its research mission. The Director encourages multi-investigator initiatives which advance areas of excellence and problems of scale appropriate to a national laboratory. Special attention will also be given to initiatives that span divisional boundaries.

A call for proposals has been distributed to division directors and administrators. Principal investigators must submit proposals to division directors by Friday, May 12. After conducting an internal review and evaluation, division directors will forward the proposals to the Director's Office by June 9. Incomplete proposals will be returned to divisions, which will have an opportunity to revise and resubmit them by June 23.

Division directors will then present the proposals from their divisions to review committees composed of the director, deputy directors, associate laboratory director, and other division directors. The director will make the final decisions on which projects will be funded.

Support for the program comes from Laboratory overhead. Approximately $6.3 million in operating expenses is planned for FY 1996. The level of capital equipment funding, which is a separate allocation, is planned to be about $500,000. If capital equipment is requested, it must be an integral part of the submitted proposals as indicated in the guidance. Funded projects will be announced by September.

The call for proposals and forms are also available on Appleshare, DIR zone, OPD server, LDRD file.

Diversity: On campus, in the workplace

By Diane LaMacchia,

In a survey of UC Berkeley freshman several years ago, white and African-American students agreed that there should be more diversity on campus. However, they disagreed about the meaning of diversity.

"Students mean different things by the term diversity," says Troy Duster, a professor of sociology and the director of the Institute for the Study of Social Change at UC Berkeley.

At a special lecture at LBL on March 21, Duster discussed "Three Stages: Climatic Differences Between Campus and Work Force Diversity." Sponsored by LBL's Workforce Diversity Office, his lecture generated a lively question-and-answer session.

"The topic is very heated at the moment," Duster said, referring to the current revisiting of affirmative action policies in the U.S. Congress and the media. "It's contentious and difficult, and there's a lot of ignorance on the topic. What we need is a lot more humility."

Duster did not address affirmative action per se, but concentrated on the stages of diversity he has observed on campus--and their possible parallels in the workplace--in the context of the social and demographic changes that have swept American cities in the last 30 years.

"Diversity is not just a political agenda," said Duster. "It's a demographic reality in our cities."

Statistics from major cities tell the story of what Duster calls "the great racial transformation of American cities." White populations are declining, as is white enrollment in public schools. In Los Angeles, for example, the city's population was 78 percent white in 1970; by 1990, whites numbered only 37 percent.

Thanks to equal opportunity, affirmative action, and diversity programs, campuses such as UC Berkeley have been transformed in the same 30-year period to reflect much greater diversity.

According to Duster, there are three recognizable stages of diversity. In the first stage--which prevailed in the 1950s and into the 1960s--one group predominates, and the situation is "monolingual, monocultural," and characterized by "unexamined privilege." During this stage, minorities--women in some cases, African Americans, Latinos, and other people of color--have two choices. They can try to assimilate, or challenge the status quo and be marginalized as "political."

But as the numbers of minority students increase, there is a possibility of mobilization and transformation of the campus in terms of curriculum and faculty, Duster said. This leads to the second stage of diversity, in which access is no longer the problem, but the "terms of engagement" are.

"Everything gets challenged and questioned," Duster said. "Now no one feels they `own' the campus. People are contesting resources and there is an unhappy image of racial/ethnic conflict."

Stage two was dominant on campus when Duster and his colleagues conducted the freshman survey at UC Berkeley. They found that the white students tended to be concerned about lack of personal social interaction among students of different ethnic backgrounds. African-American students wanted a shift in admissions policies to increase minority representation and curricular changes to reflect their experience.

"They were talking past each other," Duster said. "One is talking about personal connection, the other about institutional transformation."

In stage three, which sometimes occurs now on campus but is not yet the norm, differences are affirmed. People move back and forth into the public sphere from their differences, which "enhance and enrich the center," Duster said. "Rather than conflict--an either/or situation--one can see diversity as a situation in which individuals and groups are mutually benefited by absorbing mutual perspectives."

The three stages of diversity--which can occur simultaneously in various degrees--may not look exactly the same in the workplace, which is often more stratified than the university and where people may feel less comfortable in bringing out their differences. In the workplace, Duster said, people are not thinking about getting enriched; they are mainly concerned with pay and keeping their jobs.

"The first responsibility goes to management to try to create a work environment into which participants can bring their differences," Duster said.

He suggests that new styles of working relationships and flattened hierarchies that bring people into decision-making--regardless of their place in the hierarchy--can take advantage of the different perspectives that people bring to the job.

"Their diversity of experience may enhance the capacity of the work scene to be more efficient," he said.

In Memoriam -- Virginia Shirley

Virginia Schultz Shirley, wife of former LBL Director Dave Shirley and a member of the Nuclear Science Division's Isotopes Project, died at home in State College, Penn., on Monday, March 27, following a long battle with cancer. She was 61. She is survived by her husband and five children, David, Diane, Michael, Eric, and Gail, and by seven grandchildren.

Virginia will be remembered by many at this Laboratory for her warm personality and gracious charm, as well as for her significant accomplishments as an editor of nuclear science reference books.

A native of Pittsburgh and alumna of the prestigious Winchester-Thurston School there, she received her bachelor's degree in chemistry from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1955. She earned her master's degree in nuclear chemistry from UC Berkeley in 1957. It was while attending graduate school at Cal that she met Dave. They were married in 1956.

After attaining her master's degree, Virginia briefly joined the LBL staff to participate in nuclear spectroscopy research and to collaborate on the fifth edition of the Table of Isotopes. She then taught chemistry at Mills College and at UCB before returning to LBL in 1961 to work on the sixth and co-edit the seventh editions of the Table of Isotopes. Concurrently, she authored four editions of the Table of Nuclear Moments.

Since 1978, Virginia has participated in the evaluation work of the U.S. Nuclear Data Network. She was the editor of the Table of Radioactive Isotopes, which was first published in 1986, and was the first comprehensive and critical evaluation of the nuclear and atomic properties of radioisotopes to be tailored to the needs of scientists in fields outside of nuclear chemistry and physics.

In 1992 Virginia returned to her native state with Dave, who had accepted a position as the senior vice president for research and dean of the Graduate School at Penn State University. However, she continued to work with the Isotopes Project and was editor of the eighth edition of the Table of Isotopes, which is scheduled for publication later this year.

Virginia was an excellent photographer and had a life-long love of choral music. At Berkeley she served as a board member and president of the Young People's Symphony Orchestra. At Penn State she served on the board of the State College Choral Society.

The funeral is planned for Saturday, April 1, in State College. The family requests that contributions be sent in Virginia's name to the Pennsylvania State University fund for graduate education. Checks should be made out to Penn State University and mailed to the Development Office, Penn State University, University Park, PA 16802.

Shoemakers name comet for Seaborg

Comet-hunting spouses Caroline and Eugene Shoemaker of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 fame (the comet that plunged into Jupiter last summer) have named an asteroid in honor of Nobel laureate and LBL Associate Director-at-Large Glenn T. Seaborg. Discovered in 1983 by the Shoemakers, and formerly known as Minor Planet 4856, Seaborg is a main-belt asteroid, between 20 and 30 kilometers in diameter. It is not visible to the naked eye, but can be viewed with a telescope that has an aperture of half a meter. The naming of the asteroid has been approved by the nomenclature commission of the International Astronomical Union. Seaborg said he was "tickled" to learn of the honor.

Carl Henning, 56, will join the University of California in mid-April to head its Laboratory Administration Office. He will replace Robert Kuckuck, who returned to Lawrence Livermore Lab as deputy director of operations last November. Henning, a former senior manager at Livermore currently on special assignment to the Department of Energy, will lead a staff of about 30. Working jointly with DOE, the Laboratory Administration Office administers the University's contract for the management of LBL, LLNL, and Los Alamos National Lab.


Abraham Lincoln's commissioner of patents once recommended that he close the commission in a few years because the rate of discovery was so great that everything would be discovered by then. In the March 17 issue of Science, a number of leading scientists were asked to predict the future for their respective disciplines. The scientists were asked to be "adventurous but sound" in their prognostications. Included were several that pertain to research areas currently being explored at LBL.

In the life sciences area, Cambridge geneticist Peter Goodfellow predicted that "by the end of the decade, all the genes contributing to genetically complex diseases of humans will be known." He says population screening will identify individuals at risk for diabetes, schizophrenia, obesity, etc., and that the disease will be avoided or treated. However, he said, "balancing the rights of individuals against the needs of society is going to be difficult." The attainment of rational drug design based on protein structural information was foreseen by several contributors, but Helen Ranney, a chemist with the Alliance Pharmaceutical Corporation in San Diego, disagreed. "Rational drug design will be possible in the near term for only a few disorders. The intricacies, interdependencies and redundancies of human physiology will continue to defy simple pharmaceutical solutions to most diseases."

In high energy physics, SLAC Director Burt Richter laments the Standard Model's assignment of fractional electric charges to quarks. "To the theorists there is no problem, but it has always seemed strange that a universe whose observable constituents are all integrally charged really has some fractionally charged components deep down." He predicts that within the next decade, experiments at electron-positron colliders will reveal that in the 3-D world, quarks "are all really integrally charged after all and matter is built from things that are observable."

Based on the discovery of a new class of materials that are superconducting at the temperature of liquid air, several scientists predicted the discovery of a room-temperature superconductor with tremendous benefits for the medicine, telecommunications and electric power systems. Princeton physicist P.W. Anderson predicted, however, that "the real major use of (room temperature) superconductors will turn out to be something we haven't yet thought of." Anderson also says that "Anyone who expects any human-like intelligence from a machine in the next 50 years is doomed to disappointment."

William Brinkman of AT&T Bell Laboratories predicts a revolution for telecommunications in which "transmission of a terabit per second over a single fiber will be accomplished before the end of this century." Seismologist Don Anderson of Cal Tech says that within 10 years "we should have 3-D maps of the structure of the Earth's interior, from surface to center, with a resolution of a few hundred kilometers, including anisotropy and anelasticity." And Phil Abelson of AAAS foresees a future in which "research policy will be increasingly in the hands of politicians and, hence, subject to change in a few weeks when some crisis suddenly erupts."
