SANTA FE – A six-man team of environmental scientists from Los Alamos National Laboratory went through a series of 10-minute reports on major areas of study in the lab’s most recent environmental survey.
Lorrie Bonds Lopez, spokesperson for the program, introduced the speakers with the warning that it was a lot of information to squeeze into an hour.
“They said it couldn’t be done,” she said, suggesting that each of the overviews might also be given in three-hour versions.
Terry Morgan led off with a quick snapshot of the scope of the 2007 Environmental Surveillance Report, based on nearly 900,000 data points from the year.
The comprehensive study has been conducted each year since 1971. Writing begins in January and includes data through the middle of the year to meet an Oct. 1 publication deadline.
Andrew Green, who reported on dust and water vapor samples in and around the laboratory said, “Over many years, we have never seen any laboratory impact at any of the regional (air monitoring stations),” that track air quality in the surrounding communities.
