Research highlights from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

ACE, that allows visitors to explore an archeological site by virtually brushing away or digging through dirt to find artifacts. Once artifacts are exposed, the HIT Labs Augmented Reality Toolkit projects them onto a screen where visitors interact with them.

Industry could use this technology for human-computer interaction and collaboration, such as national security, city planning, education and entertainment. The dig is on display until Aug. 12.

Radiation study of techa river neighbors

An epidemiological study to evaluate radiation exposure to residents of a former Soviet Union community is offering researchers a unique opportunity similar to survivor studies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan. Researchers are analyzing data to determine if radiation delivered at low dose rates is equally responsible for causing cancer and other adverse health effects as the same doses delivered at high rates.

PNNL scientists are working with other national and international institutions to evaluate radiation exposures in communities located in the Techa River basin, near the southern Ural Mountains. They will study potential human health impacts to more than 30,000 people from past plutonium production efforts. Accidents and poor waste disposal practices from 1949 to 1956 exposed individuals living in 39 villages along the Techa River basin to elevated radiation doses.

Statistics stack odds in favor of airlines

Some airline travelers may think safety is just a question of odds and not realize the enormous efforts government and industry exert to make flying one of the safest forms of travel. For example, statistical science is playing a larger role in ensuring flight safety.

PNNL and Battelle, which operates the lab for the Department of Energy, are developing a suite of tools called the Aviation Performance Measuring System, or APMS, that extracts crucial safety information from digital f
