Data Center Description
The Roger G. Barry Archives and Resource Center (ARC) at NSIDC is an information resource for people studying Earth's frozen regions, the history of science, or past climate related to the Earth’s frozen regions. ARC is located at NSIDC's offices at the University of Colorado at Boulder and is open to the public.
ARC offers a unique set of collections focused on both science and history in the Earth’s frozen regions, including the Arctic, the Antarctic, glaciers, ice sheets, sea ice, frozen ground, and more. As ARC has evolved, it has expanded its mission to include responding to questions from the public, teachers, students, and researchers about these regions and Earth’s frozen features. The information and resources at ARC support NSIDC’s mission to help advance the understanding of the Earth’s frozen regions and the Earth as a system.
