Sub Title: 
Field Campaigns

The atmosphere and other components of the Earth system present scientists with complex puzzles to be solved. To get a better grasp on these problems, major field campaigns involving dozens to hundreds of researchers, often from a wide spectrum of academic disciplines and many national and international institutions, must be staged. The Earth Observing Laboratory (EOL) expertly manages the staging and instrumentation of these programs. Over weeks or months, they deploy a host of sensors and bring back large quantities of data for analysis.

Models

A primary NCAR activity is creating models that enhance human understanding of the atmosphere, the Earth system, and the Sun. Our efforts help scientists worldwide to better understand—and continually refine their knowledge of—how the Earth’s systems work. Other interested parties, such as national and regional leaders, also use this information to make decisions on scales ranging from local to international.

Observations of natural processes are the building blocks of scientific discovery. Many in NCAR’s community of scientists rely on observational data to gain insights on atmospheric phenomena and related Earth system processes. NCAR helps researchers achieve this objective, through its Earth Observing Laboratory. World-class ground, airborne, and spaceborne observational instrumentation are provided, as well as facilities, support, and data processing services that are critical to collecting and understanding atmospheric observations.
