Our Mission

The primary mission of Alaska Climate Research Center is to respond to inquiries concerning the meteorology and climatology of Alaska from public, private, and government agencies, and from researchers around the world.​

Who We Are

The Alaska Climate Research Center (ACRC) and the Alaska State Climate Center (ASCC) have been established within the University of Alaska System three decades ago. Both centers, the ACRC and the ASCC have been merged as one combined service center within the Geophysical Institute of the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) in 2018. The administration and management of the center is under the direction of the state climatologist, Dr. Martin Stuefer.
