 Series

Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

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.

Scope and Contents From the Collection:

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 Community Spectro-polarimetric Analysis Center (CSAC) is an HAO/NCAR Strategic Initiative that has its roots in HAO's long-standing expertise in the development of spectro-polarimeters and the interpretation of polarized radiation for remote sensing of magnetic fields in the Sun's atmosphere. CSAC provides a centralized access portal for Stokes polarization data (and derived data products) delivered by instruments with HAO participation. It also offers a comprehensive collection of manuals and tools for the manipulation, calibration, and analysis of spectro-polarimetric data, including data reduction and calibration, spectral line inversion, magnetic field disambiguation, and data visualization codes.
