National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)

Located in Boulder, Colorado, the mission of the National Center for Atmospheric Research is "to plan, organize, and conduct atmospheric and related research programs in collaboration with universities, to provide state-of-the-art research tools and facilities to the entire atmospheric sciences community, to support and enhance university atmospheric research education, and to facilitate the transfer of technology to both the public and private sectors." The site offers information on NCAR's scientific divisions, including the Atmospheric Chemistry Division (studying cycles of chemicals in the atmosphere, oceans, and ecosystems), the High Altitude Observatory (studying the "physical processes that govern the sun, the interplanetary environment, and the earth's atmosphere"), and many others. Of particular interest to researchers will be the section entitled Research Data Facilities; there, users may access NCAR's collection of atmospheric and oceanographic data "for use in climate research." An excellent collection of weather links rounds out the site.
