    ERDC Releases New Data Sheet for Identifying Ordinary High Watermarks

    For 10 years, the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s (ERDC) Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) has  led research on the development of a national manual and data sheet to identify the Ordinary High Water Mark (OHWM) across the United States. The national manual was released as an interim draft and describes the OHWM, which is used to define the boundaries of aquatic features for a variety of federal, state and local regulatory purposes.
  • CRREL researchers test new crude oil spill method, tools

    When it comes to oil spills, efficient methods of cleanup play a vital role in mitigating damage. Researchers from the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) are testing the effectiveness of a new tool aimed at cleaning up spills called the fire-boom.

    ERDC researcher impacts Department of Defense policy through Climate Action Team

    When the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s (ERDC) Samantha Cook enrolled as a music major at the University of New Hampshire (UNH), she never dreamed that an elective class called Global Environmental Change would dramatically change her life. The ERDC-Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) Research Physical Scientist now recalls that it was the first time she heard the phrase “global warming.” “I just took one look at the issue and said, ‘this is the problem of our generation,’” she said. Cook described how she changed her major, earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in geology from UNH, and then found a position with CRREL. Since November 2021, she has been on a detail with the Department of Defense’s Climate Action Team, helping to shape DOD guidance and policy on issues pertaining to climate change in support of the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) and the armed services.
