Computational Science

— Computational Science helps researchers create models which visualize and chart some of today’s most pressing challenges to forecast, like changing weather conditions, climate trends, and changes in sea ice. The Arctic Region Supercomputing Center (ARSC) uses Cray Inc. supercomputers to provide scientists indispensable and powerful technological tools, keeping U.S. research competitive. Computational science models allow us to understand complex trends, and predict the future of our changing world.


Supercomputers are powerful tools. Scientists use supercomputers like the average person uses their laptop. Supercomputers are indispensable when it comes to understanding, visualizing, charting, and solving some of today’s most pressing problems. (Think weather, climate change, and the space program.) Through collaboration and computation, the Arctic Region Supercomputing Center (ARSC) in Fairbanks, Alaska provides scientists with the high-performance computing resources they need for finding solutions to big problems.
