The remote Arctic region remains largely a mystery to scientists due to its sheer magnitude. The three-year collaborative project ICEBERG is determined to change that. Funded by a $1.85 million National Science Foundation grant, the ICEBERG research team will employ supercomputers to analyze high resolution images of the Arctic taken via satellite. The ultimate goal is to provide scientists with a new imagery-computing superhighway that will allow them to study processes at much larger spatial scales than has been previously possible.

Plagued with poverty, homelessness and crime, Camden, NJ has occupied a dark corner of the Garden State. Not only does 38 percent of Camden’s population live below the poverty line, the city has repeatedly ranked as the most dangerous in the nation for the past 10 years. To make matters worse, Camden is a food desert—with only one supermarket available to feed its 80,000 residents. The Engineers without Borders Camden Project is working to counteract this problem by partnering with local farmers to grow fresh produce on abandoned city lots.
