Since 1960, UCAR—the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research—has served as a national hub for research, education, and advanced technology development from the atmospheric and related Earth sciences. On behalf of the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the university community, UCAR manages the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the UCAR Community Programs (UCP).
NCAR is a federally funded research and development center (FFRDC), conducting a wide range of weather, climate, and solar science and related applications research. At the heart of this work is improving predictions about our atmosphere— how it behaves from moment to moment, day to day, and decade to decade, and the risks and opportunities associated with these changes. Each year, hundreds of people from universities, labs, and the weather enterprise collaborate with NCAR staff, and rely on NCAR resources, in order to carry out vital research and applications.
UCP provides innovative services to support education and research in the atmospheric and related sciences. UCP trains new and experienced weather forecasters; brings real-time data and software into university classrooms; develops K-12 STEM education programs and resources; manages complex scientific field projects; and supports satellite-based Earth and atmospheric monitoring.
