last updated 2024 February 12


iHARP is partnering with Amazon Web Services (AWS) in a multi-prong approach to harnessing the data revolution (HDR) in the polar regions. Through this partnership, iHARP is expanding its computing and cloud capabilities beyond Texas Advance Computing Center (TACC) resources to advance its open source data and models mission.


Immersion Days

What are Immersion Days? Immersion days are hands on workshops that allow iHARP Researchers to learn from AWS experts while gaining experience implementing AWS products and platforms. These immersion days are vital to the education and training of iHARP Researchers on the available AWS resources that will enable the expansion of research capabilities. Workshop days are open to all iHARP members, which include students (Undergraduate to PhD), senior researchers, and research collaborators.
