University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR)
Founded in 1960, University Corporation for Atmospheric Research is a nonprofit consortium of North American member universities, each of which grants doctoral degrees in the atmospheric and related sciences, plus an increasing number of international affiliates offering comparable degrees, and North American academic affiliates offering pre-doctoral degrees. UCAR serves as a hub for research, education, and public outreach for the atmospheric and Earth system science community.
UCAR provides services to and promotes partnerships in a collaborative community of researchers and educators who are dedicated to understanding the atmosphere, and the complex processes that make up the Earth system, from the ocean floor to the Sun's core. UCAR manages the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and UCAR Community Programs on behalf of the National Science Foundation and the university community.
