Videos, presentations, and problem sets from the 2012 Heliophysics Summer School, organized by UCAR’s Visiting Scientist Programs, are now online at the links below. Presented by leading experts, the talks focus on the science underlying current and future heliophysical missions, drawing on the textbooks Heliophysics I-III. The material includes:
Recruitment for the 2013 Heliophysics Summer School will begin this fall. Watch UCAR Update for an announcement.
Below are the titles of scientific positions now open at UCAR/NCAR/UCP, along with the relevant tracking codes. All jobs are based in Boulder unless otherwise indicated.
Applicants can view the full descriptions for these and other positions online.
Below is a summary of faculty positions, postgraduate fellowships, and other career opportunities now available at UCAR members and affiliates and other institutions in the atmospheric and related sciences.
These listings have been posted within the last month at the “Opportunities Beyond UCAR” website (see below), which includes links to more detail on these positions, previously posted positions, and ongoing opportunities.
Below are details on two new online publications available from UCP/COMET. Please see the accompanying Web links for more details.
Anticipating Hazardous Weather and Community Risk, 2nd Edition
This module provides emergency managers and other decision makers with background information about weather, natural hazards, and preparedness. Additional topics include risk communication, human behavior, and effective warning partnerships, as well as a desktop exercise allowing the learner to practice the types of decisions required as hazardous situations unfold.
Microwave Remote Sensing: Overview, 2nd Edition
TThis module presents an overview of space-based microwave remote sensing for environmental applications with a focus on meteorological applications. It also serves as an introduction to other, more in-depth modules covering the science and application of cloud, precipitation, water vapor, and land and sea surface observations.
