Since February 2013, the NCAR Archives has been crawling and harvesting UCAR/NCAR websites using Archive It. The harvested websites include most UCAR/NCAR webpages and associated images, video, PDF files, and other content. The collection also includes the U.S. Weather Commission, a group that brings together the American weather industry, state and local governments, and academia in an organized effort to urge Congress and the Executive Branch to undertake, promote, and support our nation’s portfolio of environmental observations and weather forecasting capabilities.

Biographical / Historical

CISL operates and maintains a premier supercomputing and data storage facility that serves the needs of the scientific community. From new theories about fundamental processes like turbulence, to complex models of climate systems and eye-opening visualizations, CISL provides resources for scientific discovery. Teaching, inspiring and helping future generations of scientists, CISL is active in several mentoring and professional development programs.

NCAR has provided computing resources and services to the atmospheric science research community since its inception in 1960. The NCAR Computing Facility was formally organized in 1964 and became the Scientific Computing Division (SCD) in 1980. SCD and the Institute for Mathematics Applied to Geosciences (IMAGe) merged in 2005 and became the Computational and Information Systems Laboratory (CISL).
