Polar Grid Infrastructure Program
The Polar Grid Infrastructure Program Polar Grid includes support for training activities associated with the new partnerships across academia, government agencies, private sectors, and polar scientists who are targeted as users of the Polar Grid Research. One of the major goals of this Program is to foster the integration of Polar Science research and education through the use of the virtual classroom environment and the smaller ECSU Grid. The project will extend the virtual classroom capabilities and installation of a GRID network for training purposes. Another goal of this program is to make a wide range of resources available in the form of on-site training; on-line tutorials and courses; and other resources for education, outreach, and training.
