July 23, 2012 | This month has been a busy one for UCAR moving crews. UCP staff left their temporary offices in the Anthes Building (FLA) earlier this month to return to FL4, which has been refurbished for greater energy efficiency and modernization to office layouts and the heating and air conditioning systems.

July 6, 2012 | Fresh faces in the lobbies, lively discussions in the halls, old friendships renewed—it’s summer at NCAR & UCAR, and that means visitors. Hundreds of people attend our colloquia and workshops each year from June to August.

June 25, 2012 | As the weather heats up in June, so do the derailleurs and spinning wheels of Boulder’s avid cycling community. NCAR & UCAR are firmly in the local bike groove, which is especially obvious on Bike to Work Day (see below). It's also evident at 11:45 a.m. each Tuesday, when anywhere from 15 to 40 local cyclists gather in front of FL2 for an informal lunchtime ride. Now a 14-year tradition, these rides cover a wide range of routes across Boulder County, typically lasting a little over an hour each.

June 18, 2012 | Deliveries of the Yellowstone supercomputing system began late last month at the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center. As more and more equipment arrives via trucks of all sizes, delivery crews, IBM technicians, and staff from NCAR's Computational and Information Sciences Laboratory are stepping into high gear. More cabinets for computing and for data storage will arrive through the end of this month.
