This collection consists of two series: Audio-visual materials and a small selection of reports. Audio-visual materials cover a range of topics, from clips of NCAR scientists speaking on their research to footage from field projects. The reports were generated by UCAR Communications and capture all mention of UCAR/NCAR in the media as it pertains to Climategate.
The collection must be viewed in the Archives during normal business hours.
