Senator Shaheen gets up close with cold regions research
HANOVER, N.H. (August 17, 2018) – U.S. Army research physical scientists Stacey Doherty and Robert Jones and research mathematician Komi Messan, Ph.D., provide U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) an up-close discovery opportunity during the senator’s visit to the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory August 17. In addition to the development of bioremediation of contaminant research, Shaheen was exposed to other cold regions research subjects including how to construct a deep-snow runway for military cargo aircraft and the latest in ice adhesion testing and evaluation. Shaheen was also provided an infrastructure update and stepped inside one of the lab’s new cold rooms. The new infrastructure enables the lab to deliver cold regions research down to -40C and is part of Continuous Process Improvement at CRREL.
