About ISP

About ISP

NCAR’s Integrated Science Program (ISP) promotes the scientific frontiers that are dependent on an integrated approach, across NCAR laboratories and across disciplines. ISP is focused on interdisciplinary research that cuts across the NCAR Laboratories and other research institutions.

  • Developing new connections among the atmospheric sciences, social sciences, ecology, hydrology, and health sciences 
  • Fostering collaborations across NCAR laboratories, divisions, institutes, and programs
  • Building new relationships with university programs and other research institutions whose expertise complements NCAR expertise

 

ISP is unique within NCAR as a “virtual” organization that does not employ its own staff. All ISP activities are defined and undertaken in cooperation with other NCAR organizations, the university community and other research institutions, and are carried out by staff from NCAR labs and outside collaborators.
