UCAR to become new home for Consortium for Ocean Leadership’s programs
The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) will become the new home for programs run by the Consortium for Ocean Leadership (COL), which is set to dissolve at the end of September. The transition marks an historic partnership between the oceanic and atmospheric science communities and will help researchers advance the study of Earth as an interconnected system.
Research aircraft to investigate monsoon-climate connections
The Asian Summer Monsoon Chemical and CLimate Impact Project (ACCLIP) will allow a team of international scientists to study how the Asian summer monsoon — one of the largest and most important meteorological patterns in the world — affects atmospheric chemistry and global climate.

Water resources to become less predictable with climate change
Water resources will fluctuate increasingly and become more difficult to predict in snow-dominated regions across the Northern Hemisphere, new research shows.
New study focuses on the impact of nuclear war on the oceans
New research finds that nuclear war would devastate the ocean, causing a steep drop in water temperature, collapsing the marine food web, and spurring significant growth of Arctic sea ice.
NCAR joins international field campaign to study extreme rainfall in Pacific
A field campaign to study extreme rainfall is underway this summer, bringing together an international team of atmospheric experts in one of the wettest areas of the globe. Based out of western Taiwan and a southern island of Japan, the Prediction of Rainfall Extremes Campaign in the Pacific (PRECIP) research team, including experts from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), will be carefully collecting data and observations of the extreme storms and monsoons that are common in this region.
