A detailed computer modeling study released today indicates that oil from the massive spill in the Gulf of Mexico might soon extend along thousands of miles of the Atlantic coast and open ocean as early as this summer.
The National Center for Atmospheric Research and its managing organization, the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research announced today that they will break ground on the construction of a supercomputing center Tuesday, June 15.
An innovative computational technique that draws on statistics, imaging, and other disciplines has the capability to detect errors in sensitive technological systems ranging from satellites to weather instruments.
The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is partnering with the Boulder Public Library to present a series of public talks and a new exhibit to mark the research organization's 50th anniversary this year.
In a vivid example of how a small geographic feature can have far-reaching impacts on climate, new research shows that water levels in the Bering Strait helped drive global climate patterns during ice age episodes dating back more than 100,000 years.
Eric J. Barron, the director of NCAR, will step down from his position to assume the presidency of Florida State University. An alumnus of FSU, Barron was selected yesterday by its Board of Trustees to lead the university.
UCAR is concerned that emails and data, including personal information about individuals, have been hacked from the University of East Anglia. The selective publication of some stolen emails and other papers taken out of context is not a responsible way to engage on the issue of climate change.
As the U.S. Senate considers climate change legislation, 18 leading scientific organizations have sent a letter to members of the senate reaffirming the scientific consensus that climate change is occurring and that greenhouse gases from human activities are the primary driver.
The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) has passed an Open Access policy requiring that peer-reviewed research published by its scientists and staff in scientific journals be made publicly available online through its institutional repository.
