LM and LMS scientists perform applied research and laboratory-scale demonstrations of soil and groundwater remediation and treatment technologies. The Applied Studies and Technology webpage provides information on research capabilities and facilities as well as links to AS&T reports and publications. LM also supports the development, standardization, and maintenance of Calibration Facilities for environmental radiation sensors.
Stakeholder Engagement involves an array of programs dedicated to communicating accurate and timely information to communities impacted by former nuclear defense sites, stakeholders, partner agencies, and the other interested groups and individuals, including Communications, Education, and Outreach; Environmental Justice; the Manhattan Project National Historical Park; and Tribal Collaboration.
