HAO’s mission is to understand the behavior of the Sun and its impact on the Earth; to support, enhance, and extend the capabilities of the university community and the broader scientific community, nationally and internationally.
In fall 2013, Steve Massie, a senior scientist in ACD, introduced FSU students to the basics of atmospheric chemistry as part of the University Visits in Scientific Interaction and Teaching program.
Wen-Chau Lee provides training on the use of the Doppler on Wheels (DOW) as part of UH’s Hawaiian Educational Radar Opportunity (HERO) program.
The AGU formally recognized four NCAR senior scientists with honors at it's 2013 Fall Meeting.
Clara Deser and colleagues study how natural climate variability influences prediction of future effects of climate change.
Scientists in the High Altitude Observatory explore atmospheric dynamics in a region where many satellites orbit.
NCAR works with federal water management agencies (Bureau of Reclamation and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) to better characterize climate effects on surface water hydrology.
Solar Cycle 24 is one of the quietest in the past 100 years, giving scientists an opportunity to further their understanding of solar dynamics as they study what might be causing the Sun's quiescence.
