Eight leading professional organizations in the field of weather and climate today called on the next administration and Congress to better protect the United States from severe weather and climate change.
Dramatic year-to-year temperature swings and a century-long warming trend across West Antarctica are linked to conditions in the tropical Pacific Ocean, according to a new analysis of ice cores conducted by scientists at NCAR and the University of Washington (UW).
People living near vulnerable creeks and rivers along the Front Range may soon get advance notice of potentially deadly flash floods, thanks to a new forecasting system being tested this summer by NCAR.
Scientists are deploying an advanced research aircraft to study a region of the atmosphere that influences climate change by affecting Earth's thermal balance. Findings will be used to improve computer models of global climate.
Student scientists from the United States and around the world are converging in South Africa this month in what is likely to be one of the largest-ever international gatherings of teenage researchers.
The National Science Board has authorized the National Science Foundation to negotiate a new cooperative agreement with UCAR to continue to manage and operate its flagship weather and climate center, NCAR.
The National Hurricane Center will implement a new technique this summer, developed by researchers at NCAR and the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), to continually monitor landfalling storms in the United States.
