Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory



The Energy and Earth Systems group (EESG) is focused on the computational modeling of (1) physical and chemical processes in the earth and atmosphere, (2) energetic materials applications, and (3) energy systems and resources. We have a strong presence in the areas of critical infrastructure protection, energy infrastructure modeling, and systems security. The disciplines represented by the EESG staff range from Civil Engineering to Chemical Engineering to Power Engineering to Geophysics. EESG staff skills include expertise in fluid flow and transport, reactive chemistry, uncertainty quantification, power engineering, energetics testing and modeling, as well as systems/operations integration and optimization.
