Based within the Graduate School of the University of Colorado, INSTAAR is primarily devoted to the coverage of its interdisciplinary research, education, and outreach initiatives emphasizing high-altitude and high-latitude regions of the world. The principle resources of interest to educators are found in the indices of the Institute's publications, the abstracts from their academic journal, and in the growing list of INSTAAR-generated bylaws, reports, Occasional Papers, and other publications made available for downloading. INSTAAR's research foci include: non-cold-region Quaternary studies and geochronology, earth-system dynamics, landscape and seascape evolution, and climate dynamics; the biological components of alpine and polar systems, global carbon and nitrogen cycling; the dynamics of biodiversity, and ecosystem disturbance and recovery; applied quantitative field and numerical methods in hydrology, glaciology, frozen ground studies, paleoclimatology, physical oceanography, and marine geology; and the reconstruction of the dynamics of paleoenvironments and past climate variability.
