On October 10, 2007, the UNC Board of Governors was given a tour of the Elizabeth City State University Polar Grid Laboratory in Lane Hall.

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. Polar Grid's major components and concept of operations are depicted in the figure below. A complete description of the project is available at http://www.polargrid.org.

The Polar Grid project collaborates with CERSER, CReSIS, and the Byrd Polar Research Center. For a list of team members and partners, see Team Members.
