About NCAR Community Resources

Using advanced technology developed at NCAR, scientists are able to conduct research and build community models that improve our understanding of the atmosphere, the Earth system, and the Sun. With these tools, NCAR provides national and regional decision-makers with the most advanced science in weather and climate modeling.


A primary NCAR activity is creating models that enhance human understanding of the atmosphere, the Earth system, and the Sun.
