Integrated Science Program

Integrated Science Program

The NCAR Integrated Science Program (ISP) is focused on interdisciplinary research that cuts across the NCAR Laboratories and other research institutions.

Our overarching goal is to develop the scientific understanding needed to manage and adapt to climate change, weather, and chemical weather through research that integrates the atmospheric sciences with social, ecological, health, hydrological, and other relevant sciences.

ISP is a “virtual” organization in that it does not employ its own staff. Its activities are undertaken by a number of programs embedded within the NCAR laboratories.
