One of the great climate mysteries that scientists are working to solve is how trees and other plants respond to a more carbon-rich atmosphere.
The Sun undergoes a type of seasonal variability, with its activity waxing and waning over the course of nearly two years, according to a new study by a team of researchers led by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
Tropical forests play a major role in the planet’s carbon cycle, but there are a lot of uncertainties about how they will respond to climate change. A new international project aims to bring the future of tropical forests into much clearer focus.
All NCAR and UCAR staff are invited to attend a full day of discovery, sharing, and networking.
Friday April 17
8:30AM – 4PM

NCAR and its research partners have received a $1.3 million NASA grant to develop the capability for detailed 48-hour forecasts of ground-level ozone and fine particulate matter.
A range of observing and modeling tools is helping researchers at NCAR and elsewhere discern previously unmapped links between weather events in various layers of the atmosphere, with implications for aviation, GPS, and other technology society relies on.
Scientists flew the new HIAPER Cloud Radar above a major northeast snowstorm, obtaining critical data on its structure and dynamics.
Using specialized modeling techniques, researchers have learned how turbulence keeps the countryside cooler than urban areas on summer days.
