NCAR/UCAR Research
The NCAR/UCAR Research collection provides access to the scholarly record of the laboratories, divisions and programs that comprise NCAR/UCAR. Collections include published works, such as journal articles and book chapters, as well as conference materials and other forms of grey literature—all of which reflect the scientific, intellectual and educational contributions of NCAR/UCAR to the atmospheric, Earth-system and related sciences.
Student Research
As part of its mission to foster the transfer of knowledge, NCAR/UCAR provides opportunities for educational and professional development to students in the atmospheric, Earth-system and related sciences. Our collections of student research provide access to the capstone projects from student-oriented programs such as Significant Opportunities in Atmospheric Research and Science (SOARS), Summer Internships in Parallel Computational Science (SIParCS), and Digital Curation Education in Research Centers (DCERC).
US Climate Variability and Predictability (CLIVAR) is a national research program with a mission to foster understanding of the ocean's role in the climate system. Coordinating and progressing research on outstanding climate questions, this collection of reports and white papers have been headed by US CLIVAR and supported by programs within five federal agencies which include: the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Department of Energy (DOE), and the Office of Naval Research (ONR).
