Planning for the future with environmental and biological research

The DOE Office of Science's Biological and Environmental Research (BER) program conducts research in sustainable biofuel production, improved carbon storage, climate prediction, and contaminant bioremediation.

This work advances our understanding of the roles of Earth’s atmosphere, land, oceans, sea ice, and subsurface in predicting climate feedbacks and understanding earth system process dynamics. Research results help improve our predictive understanding of the earth system across scales.
