Laboratory Open House
Saturday, Oct. 28
DOE Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Christine Ervin spent Oct. 11 getting a first-hand look at the Laboratory's energy efficiency research and the industrial partnerships that help make it possible.
Visiting the Energy and Environment's lighting lab in Bldg. 46, Ervin witnessed the signing of a licensing agreement between the Laboratory and Lumatech, one of the nation's foremost lighting manufacturing companies. She met with E&E researcher Michael Siminovitch and Lumatech vice president Bruce Pelton, who developed a jointly patented technology for compact fluorescent retrofit fixtures. As a result of the agreement, Lumatech will manufacture and market the energy-saving fixtures.
Ervin was also briefed on the latest advanced windows research by E&E's Steve Selkowitz and Mike Rubin. Also attending the session were several representatives from private industry who are collaborating on windows research and development. Ervin was presented with a one-square-foot sample of low-E (low-emissivity) window glazing, which represented the 1 billionth square foot sold.
An electrochromic prototype "smart window" from a recently launched electrochromics initiative was unveiled during Ervin's visit. The prototype is a key milestone for the first six months of the 50/50 DOE-industry cost-shared program. Eventually, a version of the window will be provided for Ervin's own office.
Ervin was also briefed on the Energy Analysis Program, advanced battery research, and energy efficient ducts in the Indoor Air Quality chemistry laboratory.

Mammoth Mountain, a mecca for winter skiers and summer hikers in the eastern Sierras, has lately attracted another kind of attention. Part of an ancient, but by no means inactive, volcanic basin, the mountain is sending out signals of resurgent activity.
Since 1989, the Earth Sciences Division's Mack Kennedy has been part of a team of scientists attempting to understand what is brewing deep beneath the surface at Mammoth Mountain. The effort is aimed not only at anticipating events at Mammoth Mountain, but at enhancing our limited ability to discern and interpret signs of unrest in volcanic areas.
In a cover article in the Aug. 24 issue of Nature, Kennedy and co-authors report a hitherto unknown sign of volcanic activity. Trees that have been dying on the flank of the mountain are not the victims of drought, as had been suspected, but are being killed by carbon dioxide emitted as molten rock intrudes into the mountain.
The tree-kill zones, which occur over some 75 acres, were first reported in 1990. Over several years, foresters realized that the pattern did not match that attributable to drought. In the areas where trees were dying, all trees regardless of age or species were affected, and insect infestations were not involved.
A year ago, a team that included Kennedy and researchers at the U.S. Geological Survey and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, surveyed soil gases in these areas. They found carbon dioxide concentrations ranging from about one percent in healthy forest to as high as 90 percent within tree-kill areas. Where concentrations were above 30 percent, most trees were dead. Kennedy's research indicates that the carbon dioxide soil gas in the tree-kill zones is mostly of volcanic origin.
Aside from carbon dioxide, no other lethal gases were detected. Researchers believe high concentrations of carbon dioxide kill plants by inhibiting root function.
Mammoth Mountain, some 30 miles south of Mono Lake, is part of the Long Valley caldera that was formed about 760,000 years ago during an eruption that was 500 times larger than that of Mount St. Helens. Smaller eruptions have occurred in the area as recently as 500 years ago.
Researchers report that the total discharge of carbon dioxide from the 75 acres involved in the vegetation die-off is at least 1,200 tons per day. This is comparable to that seen during low-level eruptions of a number of volcanoes including Kilauea, Augustine, and Mount St. Helens.
Scientists say there are no signs of an imminent eruption at Mammoth Mountain, although the mountain will continue to be closely monitored.
Although researchers cannot directly observe the underground flow of magma, they can deduce a great deal through the monitoring of the gases it emits. Whereas there are some questions about what percentage of the carbon dioxide is attributable to a volcanic source, a much better tracer of fresh magmatic volatiles is the helium 3 isotope.
Kennedy, a member of the Berkeley Center for Isotope Geochemistry, has led the helium 3 monitoring effort. Concurrent with the increase in unusual seismic activity, helium 3 levels rose in 1989 and have remained high ever since.
Magma flowing up from the mantle carries helium 3 with it. At one Mammoth Mountain fumarole, Kennedy says, the ratio of helium 3 to helium 4 recently has ranged from five to 6.7 times that found in air. Prior to the swarm of seismic activity beginning in 1989, the ratio had averaged 3.8.
The ratio of helium 3 in the tree-kill areas is also as high as 6.7 times the air ratio, and the ratio of helium 3 to carbon dioxide is identical to that in the Mammoth Mountain fumarole, providing evidence that the carbon dioxide responsible for the tree kills has a magmatic source.
In addition to indicating a resurgence in volcanic activity, Kennedy says the monitoring, combined with mapping of high carbon dioxide in soil gas, may provide an indirect measure of the size, depth, and duration of the molten material being injected into the mountain.
Kennedy is part of the team that will continue to monitor the Mammoth Mountain area. Researchers are devising strategies to define the extent of the volcanic gas emissions as well as their changes in intensity. To the extent that they succeed, scientists will have a clearer picture of what lies ahead.
CAPTION: Earth Sciences' Mack Kennedy is studying helium 3 levels at Mammoth Mountain to track resurgent volcanic activity.
Refrigerators are often the second largest energy users in a home, in part because they maintain a constant wattage level. Purchasing a new, more energy-efficient refrigerator could save $100 a year in electricity costs. Additional savings can be found by using such tactics as putting frozen foods in the refrigerator to defrost.
This is just a sample of the information that will be available at the Lab's upcoming Energy Awareness Fair, scheduled for 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 24 in the cafeteria lobby.
Representatives from PG&E will have information on saving energy at home through rate changes and changes in the way energy is used. Steven Pickle of the Energy and Environment Division will demonstrate national and consumer savings from energy-efficient home appliances and lighting products. The latest developments in energy-efficient home lighting will also be on display, courtesy of the E&E Lighting Research Group.
A highlight of the fair will be a "Guess That Refrigerator Energy Consumption" contest. You will be invited to test your appliance energy knowledge by estimating an older model fridge's annual consumption. Guesses will be assessed against the actual metered value, and the winner or winners will be awarded with a certificate and a prize. All employees are welcome to participate.
LBNL's employees got some presidential health advice last week. Dean Ornish, UC San Francisco professor of medicine and one of President Clinton's personal physicians, gave a noontime talk about fat, diet and heart disease, including some of his recent research.
Author of two best-selling books, Ornish advocates comprehensive changes in lifestyle--with radical changes in what people eat, coupled with exercise and stress reduction--to actually reverse damage caused by heart disease, without pills or surgery. Director of the Preventative Medicine Research Institute in Sausalito, Ornish was hosted by the Life Sciences Division's Lipoprotein and Atherosclerosis Group on Oct. 10.
The Ornish diet cuts fat intake down to only 10 percent of total calories (health guidelines generally recommend people limit fat intake to 30 percent). Ornish also recommends a primarily vegetarian diet for heart patients, cutting out red meat, poultry and fish. His patients get their protein from egg whites and non-fat dairy products.
A complete overhaul of a heart disease patient's diet is necessary, Ornish said, given the psychological hurdles that face people in everyday life. The hurdles are the fatty foods and habits such as cigarettes that help people get through the day, but wreak havoc on the heart.
Going only part way with lifestyle changes--replacing steak with fish and cutting out a little fat--gives a dieter "all the aggravation but nothing to show for it," he said. "Your cholesterol may drop a little. You may lose a little weight, but then you gain it back."
A diet extremely low in fat, coupled with moderate exercise and meditation, Ornish says, gives his heart patients immediate results. Patients on his regimen report a 91-percent decrease in chest pain within weeks. Ornish attributes much of the recovery to the freeing of the normal healing mechanisms in the cardiovascular system.
"It is a question of giving people a better quality of life right now, not just extending their life span a year or two in the future," he said. "When people see immediate results, the smart choices become clear."
Ornish showed recent arterial PET images from heart disease patients in several of his studies, one of which was from an LBNL retiree. Studies over the last decade, he said, are showing that over the long term, his diet increases blood flow in clogged arteries. Ornish has studied the effects of diet and stress on the circulatory system in both humans and monkeys since the late 70s. n

Both the cafeteria lot and the lot in front of Bldg. 50 will be shut down at 8 a.m. on Friday. A 40-by-60-foot canopy and six 10-by-10 food booths will be assembled in the cafeteria area, which will be the central assembly location for visitors. A 20-by-20-foot canopy in the Bldg. 50 lot will become the Family Science Tent, a hands-on display area for school-age children and their parents.
About 20 parking spaces in the Bayview lot across from Bldg. 55 will be blocked off to set up the Seismic Imaging Van.
"We apologize for the temporary inconvenience we know this will cause for some employees," said Open House coordinator Ron Kolb. "But we hope everyone understands how important it is for the Laboratory to fully prepare the site for our neighbors and friends who will visit on Saturday." He encouraged the use of carpools and public transportation on Friday.
Exhibits will be disassembled and the lots reopened by Sunday afternoon.
The general public will not be permitted to drive or park at the Lab; only employees with valid parking permits will be allowed on site. Free public parking will be available at four University lots between Oxford and the Laboratory along Hearst, and shuttle buses will pick up visitors from those lots and the Berkeley BART station every seven minutes.
A central staging area where most of the program activities are concentrated--generally from the cafeteria and the Advanced Light Source east to the National Center for Electron Microscopy (Bldg. 72)--will be off-limits to all vehicles except shuttle buses.
All entrance gates will be open to employees from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Those who arrive at the Lab before 9:30 a.m.--especially those who will be working during the Open House--will be allowed to park in areas generally to the north and west of the staging area. This would include spots along Upper Hill Road between Bldgs 90, 71, and 76.
After 9:30 a.m., barriers will restrict site access at three locations--east of the Bevatron Circle, inside the Grizzly Peak entrance at Bldg. 76, and on Cyclotron Road just west of the Bldg. 66/62 access road.
A total of about 500 parking spots will be open for employees throughout the day. These include the Horseshoe Lot on Cyclotron Road, spaces around Bldg. 88, the Blackberry Canyon lot (including the access road), spaces around Bldgs 75 and 69, the lot across from the Strawberry gate entrance, and spaces around Bldgs 62 and 66.
Employees are encouraged to drive with caution throughout the day; shuttle buses will be traveling the wrong way on some one-way roads as part of special tour routes.
If all on-site lots are filled, employees will have to park in one of the four University lots available--behind Foothill Housing on Cyclotron Road, at the corner of La Loma and Hearst, at Scenic and Hearst, and below the UC Berkeley Genetics Building at Oxford and Berkeley Way, one block south of Hearst. The off-site bus route will travel along Hearst, Oxford, Center and Milvia Streets, including a stop across from the main BART station. Parking will be free in these lots.
Handicapped parking for employees will be available on the west side of the Bldg. 50 complex.
