    (NCAR) Earth Observing Laboratory (EOL) received recognition for innovative
    dropsonde technology at the 2011 Colorado Governor's Award for High-Impact

  • New Leadership at NCAR

    Over the past year, NCAR has gained three new leaders, as well as a new president of UCAR. Learn more about our new directors

  • NCAT Comes to NCAR

    Students from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NCAT) work with scientists in the Atmospheric Chemistry Division as part of a long-distance, graduate-level atmospheric chemistry class.

  • HIPPO Takes to the Skies

    HIAPER Pole-to-Pole Observations (HIPPO) researchers continue investigating the atmospheric carbon cycle and greenhouse gas dynamics when the fourth of five missions flies in June 2011. Flying pole-to-pole, from the Earth's surface to the tropopause, HIPPO provides the first-ever comprehensive, year-round perspective on a variety of global atmospheric constituents and processes.

  • Advancing Antarctic Science with AMPS

    Having advance notice of poor weather is useful to anyone, but it is particularly critical for those working in remote polar regions where weather can quickly amplify existing conditions. To maximize its research mission safety and effectiveness, the National Science Foundation’s Office of Polar Programs supports the Antarctic Mesoscale Prediction System, which aids weather prediction in Antarctica.
