Many facets of everyday life, from boarding a plane to turning on the lights or driving down the highway, are becoming safer and more cost-effective with the help of technologies rooted in atmospheric science being done at NCAR & UCAR and in collaboration with our many partners. Inspiring, nurturing, and guiding these technologies—from their foundations in basic research until the day that they impact people’s lives—is a fundamental aspect of our mission.
In a special report in AtmosNews, we’ll be sharing stories of NCAR’s innovation-to-impact science in more detail over the coming weeks, covering topics that range from in-flight icing to wind energy forecasting to meningitis prevention. You can start exploring the series now, and we’ll publicize new stories as we add them. You can also sign up for email alerts on our home page or follow AtmosNews via RSS news feed.
