Leveraging AI to address climate change challenges

Climate and Environment

Exploring and addressing the national security and public health challenges from a rapidly changing environment

We explore and develop technologies to respond to national security and public health challenges in a rapidly changing environment. By leveraging APL’s technical expertise and through strategic collaborations, we deliver critical contributions to assess and respond to the effects of climate change, enhance environmental resilience, and adapt to extreme environments.

Eliminating Forever Chemicals

Multiple studies have linked PFAS exposure to harmful health effects in humans and animals, and without a natural way to break them down, the chemicals persist in soil and contaminate the environment — including water. APL scientists are developing several technologies to capture and destroy these “forever chemicals.”
