Polar Grid is an National Science Foundation (NSF) Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) funded partnership of Indiana University and Elizabeth City State University. The partnership goal is to acquire and deploy the computing infrastructure needed to investigate the urgent problems in glacial melting. A complete description of the project is available at http://www.polargrid.org.
Center of Excellence for Remote Sensing Education and Research (CERSER) program. The goal of CERSER is to develop and implement innovative and relevant research collaboration focused on ice sheet, coastal, ocean, and marine research. This program is open for students in the math and science fields. Dr. Linda B. Hayden, Director of The Center for Remote Sensing Education and Research (CERSER), is leading ECSU's efforts in this partnership with Dr. Prasad Gogineni, the Director of the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets(CReSIS). http://cerser.ecsu.edu/purpose.asp
The Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) is a Science and Technology Center established by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 2005, with the mission of developing new technologies and computer models to measure and predict the response of sea level change to the mass balance of ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica. NSF’s Science and Technology Center (STC) program combines the efforts of scientists and engineers to respond to problems of global significance, supporting the intense, sustained, collaborative work that is required to achieve progress in these areas. CReSIS provides students and faculty with opportunities to pursue exciting research in a variety of disciplines; to collaborate with world-class scientists and engineers in the US and abroad; and to make meaningful contributions to the ongoing, urgent work of addressing the impact of climate change. https://www.cresis.ku.edu/

SALSA (Service Aggregated Linked Sequential Activities), generalize the well known CSP (Communicating Sequential Processes) of Hoare to describe the low level approaches to area a) as “Linked Sequential Activities” in SALSA. We use activities in SALSA to allow one to build services from either threads, processes (usual MPI choice) or even just other services. We choose linkage to denote the different ways of synchronizing the parallel activities that may involve shared memory rather than some form of messaging or communication. http://salsahpc.indiana.edu/content/welcome-salsa
