Coronal Solar Magnetism Observatory (COSMO), 2013 -
Scope and Contents
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. In 2021 the organization began the second phase of an initiative to migrate all sites to a consistent format and move internal content to a single portal. For this internal, password-protected content a web-recorder software was used to capture material. This content is not browsable online but available by request from the archivist. This content is still considered internal-only.
The date ranges in this finding aid refer to the time period in which the websites were crawled. The content on the websites may reflect earlier dates.

Biographical / Historical
The COronal Solar Magnetism Observatory (COSMO) is a unique ground-based facility designed to address current shortfalls in our capability to measure magnetic fields in the solar corona. COSMO comprises three elements. The first two focus on chromospheric and prominence magnetometry (ChroMag), and observing the electron scattered K-corona (K-Cor). The third and central instrument is the 1.5-m aperture Large Coronagraph (LC) that will continuously observe the radiation emitted by the corona in a number of visible and near-IR emission lines.
