NCAR/UCAR…right In our backyard

The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is a federally funded research and development center devoted to service, research and education in the atmospheric and related sciences. NCAR’s mission is to understand the behavior of the atmosphere and related physical, biological and social systems; to support, enhance and extend the capabilities of the university community and the broader scientific community – nationally and internationally; and to foster transfer of knowledge and technology for the betterment of life on Earth. The National Science Foundation is NCAR’s primary sponsor, with significant additional support provided by other U.S. government agencies, other national governments and the private sector.

Among NCAR’s mission mandates is supporting, enhancing, and extending the scientific community’s capabilities and fostering transfer of knowledge and technology, nationally and internationally. A vital part of this mission is served by providing opportunities to exchange information and ideas between those within our scientific community and NCAR staff through NCAR’s visitor programs. NCAR hosts hundreds of visitors each year. Visit opportunities are available to university faculty, lab scientists, professionals, and students.
