Air pollution, Mexico City (DI01871)
Air pollution, Mexico City (DI01871)
Air pollution from Mexico City creates a hazy sunset. This image was taken during the MIRAGE field project. MIRAGE scientists investigated the chemical transformation of air pollution as it flows from Mexico City to surrounding regions and the globe as a whole, with an eye toward applying what they learned to megacities around the world.

Airborne Radar (DI01247)
Airborne Radar (DI01247)
In 1986, the airborne radar planning begins for a new Doppler radar to be mounted in the tail section of the NSF/NCAR Electra aircraft. The Electra Doppler Radar, built in collaboration with the French government, made its debut in the winter of 1992-93 at the Tropical Ocean and Global Atmosphere Program's Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Response Experiment.
Aircraft  (DI01145)
Aircraft (DI01145)
A range of aircraft were deployed at the Mid-America Airport, just outside St. Louis, for BAMEX (the Bow Echo and MCV Experiment) during the spring of 2003.

Aircraft Hangar at the Research Aviation Facility (DI01418)
This aircraft hangar is based at the Research Aviation Facility at Jefferson County Airport in Broomfield, Colorado. This hangar, at 35,000 square feet, houses two research airplanes: the NSF/NCAR High-performance Instrumented Airborne Platform for Environmental Research (HIAPER) and the C-130.

Aircraft fabrication (DI00850)
The Atmospheric Technology Division of the National Center for Atmospheric Research provides high-level fabrication capabilities for maintenance and instrument needs of NCAR's research aviation fleet. Pictured: Mechanic Kip Eagan.
Aircraft instrumentation in 1968 (DI01253)
Aircraft instrumentation in 1968 (DI01253)
In 1968, research on small-scale air motion leaps forward with data from an internal navigation system that helps aircraft orient themselves in space. Through a nose-mounted probe adapted by Donald Lenschow (NCAR) and Jim Telford (Desert Research Institute), air flow in all directionswas measured and correlated to heat, moisture, and other variables

Aircraft with Eldora Radar (DI01150)
The Electra Doppler Radar (Eldora) was mounted in the tail section of a P-3 aircraft from the Naval Research Laboratory during, BAMEX, the Bow Echo and MCV Experiment, at the Mid America Airport just east of St. Louis, MO.

Airplane (DI00698)
The National Center for Atmospheric Research's research aircraft are stationed at the Jefferson County Airport, about 12 miles southeast of NCAR headquarters, in Boulder, Colorado. The aircraft (owned by the National Science Foundation and operated by NCAR) are used for atmospheric studies conducted around the world by NCAR and its member institutions.
