The AQC is associated with the University of Alaska Museum. The center sponsors seminars and workshops and hosts visiting faculty from throughout the world. Quaternary scholars from UAF regularly correspond with Soviet colleagues and travel to Siberia and the Soviet Far East to work in the field and at the institutes of the Soviet Academy of Sciences. With the Arctic Research and Policy Act of 1984 and other programs (e.g. global change and biodiversity) focusing on the importance of interdisciplinary research in high latitudes, the AQC will play an increasingly important role in the organization of northern science.
