The Arctic Region Supercomputing Center (ARSC) is a high-performance computing (HPC) research unit of the University of Alaska Fairbanks, America’s Arctic University.  Funding for ARSC operations is augmented through external grants and contracts from a variety of sources.   Since ARSC's first compute cycles were realized in 1993, staff at ARSC have established a reputation for providing  outstanding service in all aspects of high-performance computing, massive data storage and HPC network support.

ARSC has targeted high-latitude environmental modeling as a major thrust area, and commits substantial resources to climate and weather modeling activities.  This presentation provides an overview of ARSC and some of its computational projects, with a major emphasis in its numerical weather prediction activities.



Don Morton served for eight years in the United States military, while completing a bachelors degree in computer science at the College of Great Falls Montana, in the Rocky Mountains of the United States.    He completed a PhD in computer science at Louisiana State University with a research area of dynamically adaptive finite element methods for petroleum reservoir simulations.  In 1993 he commenced an affiliation with Alaska’s Arctic Region Supercomputing Center (ARSC) while moving through the ranks  of Assistant, Associate and Full Professor in Oklahoma and Montana, continuing to maintain relations with ARSC.  In 2004 Don began to pursue a personal interest in numerical weather prediction, and in 2009 began working full time for ARSC as a Research Professor, specializing interests in atmospheric modeling.  In his spare time Don loves to enjoy the outdoors of Alaska and dog mushing with his four labrador retrievers.
