Climate and Global Dynamics Division (CGD)

 Collection
Identifier: 04-03-01-CGD
Scope and Contents The Climate and Global Dynamics Division (CGD) Records document the Division's early days at NCAR as the Atmospheric Analysis and Prediction Division (AAP) to more recent research.  Materials showcase CGD's research objectives and computer models around understanding the Earth's climate and climate change through correspondence, committee materials, presentations, formal reports, project plans, and records pertaining to the acquisition of NCAR's supercomputers.

Global Atmospheric Research Program (GARP) Records

 Collection
Identifier:  - GARP
Scope and Contents The Global Atmospheric Research Program (GARP) called for an international effort that would be spread over a decade and aimed at greatly increasing knowledge of the global behavior of the atmosphere. A global observing system and a series of field programs and computer experiments were planned as part of the Program with the goal of extending the range of large-scale weather forecasts beyond the then limit of three to five days.The GARP Records include budget information,...

Global Atmospheric Research Programme Atlantic Tropical Experiment (GATE) Records

 Collection
Identifier: 04-03-02-GATE
Scope and Contents The GARP Atlantic Tropical Experiment (GATE) was a large and complex international scientific experiment designed to gain an increased understanding of the atmosphere and causes of climatic variation and change. GATE sought to learn how cloud clusters in the tropic transformed and redistributed energy within the atmosphere, knowledge that was needed for the development of numerical models for long-range weather prediction and for assessing the long-term effects of pollutants on the...

National Scientific Balloon Facility (NSBF) Records

 Collection
Identifier:  - NSBF
Scope and Contents The National Scientific Balloon Facility (NSBF) Records document the early days of the NSBF while it was managed by NCAR. Records illuminate the logistics of conducting balloon flights abroad and at home, particularity during the Cold War era. The collection offers a window into instrumentation, modifications, and issues with balloons and electronics packages. The collection includes correspondence, memos, budgets, reports, proposals, and papers. Selections from this collection are available...

Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere- Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Response Experiment (TOGA-COARE) Records

 Collection
Identifier:  - TOGAC
Scope and Contents The Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Response Experiment (COARE) was designed by an international group of scientists as an integral part of the Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere (TOGA) Study. TOGA-COARE brought together scientists and support staff from 20 nations. The experiment combined oceanography, meteorology, and computer climate modeling to better understand the effect of tropical warm weather regions on the tropical ocean-global atmosphere system.UCAR managed TOGA-COARE, the second...
