    Detecting sound in the Arctic

    The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory’s (CRREL) signature physics branch is obsessed with sound -- or more specifically, the way it travels through the atmosphere and interacts with terrain – and methods for extracting information from sound signals.
  • Researchers test vehicle mobility and performance for Arctic environments

    Researchers from the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s (ERDC) Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory’s (CRREL) Force Projection and Sustainment Branch are researching new technology to assist the Army with achieving its objective of regaining Arctic dominance by ensuring Soldiers have vehicles equipped to handle the coldest regions on Earth.
  • A SMART scholar

    In 2016, Warren Kadoya was finishing up his master’s at the University of Arizona in Tucson — looking for a job and aspiring to continue his education by pursing a doctorate in environmental engineering ― when his advisors encouraged him to apply to the Department of Defense’s (DoD) SMART Scholarship program. Kadoya was selected for the program by the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) in Hanover, New Hampshire, and the experience enabled him to continue his education while simultaneously working in his field of study.
  • CRREL researchers test new modular LiDAR tower, sensors

    The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory’s (CRREL) Remote Sensing Geographic Information System Center of Expertise (RSGIS CX) is testing a newly engineered automated terrestrial laser scanning system (A-TLS) in Alaska.

    CRREL hosts Arctic science and technology summit

    As focus continues to shift towards the complexities of the Arctic, the Department of Defense (DOD) hosted an Arctic science and technology (S&T) summit at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) in Hanover, New Hampshire.

    Making Waves: ERDC studies oil spill cleanup techniques

    In the event of an oil spill in the ocean, such as an oil tanker tipping over, its container getting breached or an oil rig’s pipeline leaking, immediate response for cleanup is needed. However, at times, it can be difficult to determine the best means of effective oil-spill cleanup.
  • CRREL tests new ways to measure smoke density

    CRREL partners with the U.S. Coast Guard's Research and Development Center and the Environmental Protection Agency to test an aerial drone to determine how effective the device is for measuring air quality and environmental impact of burning oil on water. The aerial drone is a new means of capturing these measurements, and CRREL is one of the few federal agencies with the knowledge, permissions, licenses, and facilities to accommodate in situ burns.

    CRREL Site Visit

    Students from the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute program at Dartmouth College, located in Hanover, New Hampshire, visited the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Research and Development Center’s Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory, also located in Hanover, February 24, 2020. The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute believes that regardless of age, learning never stops. This winter, they offered the course “Hot Topics at the Cold Regions Lab,” giving 46 students — made up of mostly retired professionals from a variety of backgrounds — the opportunity to hear from CRREL scientists and engineers about the type of work they do for laboratory and the ERDC.
