The program ArArCALC provides an interactive interface to data reduction in 40Ar/39Ar geochronology. ArArCALC is coded within Visual Basic for Excel 97-2000-XP using datasheets, charts, menus and dialogboxes. All 40Ar/39Ar age calculations are reported in single Excel workbooks. ArArCALC can be used online or offline during mass spectrometry and includes three different utilities within one program: (1) curved or linear data regression, (2) age calculation, and (3) J-value calculation. These utilities fully interact with each other providing a high level of automation. ArArCALC also allows for editing of all input data, parameters and constants used in the calculations at all times. ArArCALC is provided as freeware. This is the third release of ArArCALC. This release goes together with the publication of ArArCALC in Computer and Geosciences 28 (2002) 605-619. For a full list of new features please visit the ArArCALC website.
