Our Work

The International Arctic Research Center (IARC) is a premier research institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. It is home to more than 100 scientists, staff, and students working on a wide variety of issues related to Arctic system science, climate change, and climate adaptation.

We maintain strong partnerships with Arctic experts in Russia, Japan, Canada, Germany, Norway, Korea, and China. This combination of expertise and collaborations is aimed at helping people understand and adapt to a changing Arctic climate.

Projects

Projects are shorter-term research efforts involving IARC personnel and colleagues from a variety of organizations. See IARC projects

Collaborations and initiatives

Our larger, longer-term collaborative efforts work from multiple angles to help people understand and adapt to a changing Arctic climate. Other groups address pressing social and economic problems with applied research.

IARC and its affiliates are housed within the Syun-Ichi Akasofu Building, located on the West Ridge of the UAF campus in Fairbanks.
