SOARS protégé and NCAR mentor

Our visitors are valued members of the UCAR/NCAR community and our Visitor Program is a vital element of our mission and goals.

As part of our core values, we encourage and support collaboration with colleagues within the U.S. and abroad. To further those interactions we offer a variety of opportunities to visit our organization. As a result, we host hundreds of visitors each year: university faculty, lab scientists, professionals, and students. Those who are interested in learning more about the various visitor programs offered at our organization (including internships, fellowships and scientific and technical visits) can find detailed information here.

Research and collaborative tools that we offer to the atmospheric, solar, and Earth system science community include Computer Forecasting Models; computing facilities; services and workshops; data archives and services; satellite instruments; aircraft; and ground-based facilities for collecting weather, climate, and other Earth system data; and offering education and training services to weather forecasters, hydrologists, oceanographers, environmental and social scientists, and students.
