Annual Reports

These reports document NCAR's continuing efforts to understand the earth's atmosphere, oceans, and sun through research and facility support in the atmospheric and related sciences. They address both ongoing research activities and new initiatives undertaken by NCAR's labs and divisions. The annual report was known as the Annual Scientific Report (ASR) in earlier years, and later became known as the NCAR Annual Report (NAR). These reports are part of the NCAR and UCAR Publications Collection in the NCAR Archives.
