Argonne is leading a strategy to moderate the effects and causes of climate and environmental changes. Our biological and environmental research is focused on understanding the physical impact of climate change from soil to sky and assessing the regional economic, health and social consequences of these changes. This research will provide a solid base for informed environmental decision-making.
Our environmental management programs help solve the nation's environmental problems and promote responsible environmental stewardship throughout society. Research in this area includes alternative energy systems; environmental risk and economic impact assessments; and hazardous waste site analysis and remediation planning.
