Based at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks, The Arctic Region Supercomputing Center (ARSC) provides high-performance supercomputing for the Arctic region. Visitors to ARSC's Science and Engineering pages can learn about computer-based research projects on arctic, polar regions, and high latitudes (e.g., ice-tide interaction of the Arctic Ocean, imaging the Bering Glacier surge, volcanic ash plume simulation) along with other computer-based techniques (e.g., visualization of MRI data or atmospheric aerosol monitoring). Atmospheric Sciences, Engineering and Environmental Sciences, Geophysics, Medical and Health Related Research, Oceanography and Marine Sciences, and Space Physics are the subcategories of the Science and Engineering section. On these pages, a wide range of items are available: articles from ARSC's newsletter Challenges, animations of computer models and simulations (MPEG, .gif), satellite images, links to laboratories, and more. Summaries of research techniques and specific projects describe the issues driving research, the hows and whys of models used, and brief overviews of the results (if available). Other highlights of the site include an index of the center's software with descriptions and links, an image map and text description of the ARSC computer system, and the newsletter, Challenges, providing fresh, illustrated articles on computer modeling research. Those in the Fairbanks area might also be interested in the daily local weather reports. ARSC's Website is a good place to take a brief look at the numerous computer modeling and simulation research techniques in use today, especially those dealing with high latitude regions.
