T he Division of Atmospheric Sciences supports research to add new understanding of the behavior of the earth's atmosphere and its interactions with the sun. sondrestrom Included are:
  • Studies of the physics, chemistry, and dynamics of earth's upper and lower atmosphere and its space environment.
  • Research on climate processes and variations.
  • Studies to understand the natural global cycles of gases and particles in earth's atmosphere.

NSF also provides support for participation by the United States scientific community in international scientific research endeavors, such as the World Climate Research Program.

  National Center for Atmospheric Research

NSF also provides support to operate the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). NCAR scientists conduct research in atmospheric and related sciences and work with universities and other organizations to coordinate large-scale atmospheric research projects. In addition, NCAR and certain universities operate major aircraft, computers, and other facilities for use by university, NCAR, and scientists.
