HIPPO, a three-year field project to take the most extensive airborne samples to date of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, has captured data from the Arctic to the Antarctic.
A new study sheds light on why the Sun’s outer atmosphere, or corona, is more than 20 times hotter than its surface. The research, led by NCAR, may bring scientists a step closer to understanding the solar cycle and the Sun’s impacts on Earth.
Experience hands-on science and Halloween fun at this year’s Super Science Saturday at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) on Saturday, October 30, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This free, annual family event will be held at NCAR’s Mesa Lab at 1850 Table Mesa Drive in south Boulder.
A new computer modeling study by researchers at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the University of Colorado at Boulder (CU) shows how the movement of wind as described in the book of Exodus could have parted the waters.
NCAR is a major center of scientific supercomputing development and production. It provides supercomputing resources not only for its own scientists but as a community service to U.S. and international universities and labs engaged in atmospheric and Earth system research.
