About CRREL

The Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory is solving challenges in all climates, particularly Earth’s coldest regions.

04

Experimenting with winter mobility

Hear from our research engineers on the importance of our winter mobility experiment.

05

Breaking ground for climatic chamber building

We broke ground on a new facility that will allow us to test extreme cold-weather environments to develop and validate Army field materiel.

06

Supporting NASA's mission to Mars

We're working with NASA to see if the wells we created to harvest water under ice on Earth can provide water for people in research stations on Mars.

07

Studying Arctic sea ice

At a temporary camp built on a sheet of ice on the Arctic Ocean, we worked with the U.S. Navy on an experiment to predict potential breaks in sea ice.

08

Answering the call

When Army 1st Lt. Matthews got the call to go to New York in March 2020 to help with alternate care facilities, he sprang into action.

Welcome

At ERDC’s Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL), we’re developing innovative solutions for science and engineering challenges in extreme environments. Learn about what we do and how you can join us.
