Hear from NCAR scientist Christine Shields in a lecture about atmospheric rivers

Join us at the Longmont Museum to learn how combining models, observations, and future emissions projections makes it possible to predict climate variations a decade in advance.

Join NCAR scientist Dr. Curtis Walker in a conversation about the impact that weather has on roads and techniques to quantify those impacts

Hear from NCAR scientist Dr. Anna Malanushenko in this conversation about some unexpected results of her recent work comparing observations of sunlight with modeled structures of the solar atmosphere.

In this lecture, NCAR scientist Dr. Nihanth Cherukuru discusses the application of inclusive design principles to scientific data visualizations.

NCAR scientist Dr. Jadwiga Richter and Cornell University professor Dr. Douglas MacMartin present the latest research findings of modeling studies of risks and benefits of climate intervention utilizing stratospheric aerosols.

Hear from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln's Dr. Ross Dixon about the science of modeling the Earth system.

NCAR's James Done discusses what we know about our changing extreme weather events, such as deadly heatwaves and flooding rains with Thursday Nights @ the Museum at Longmont Museum
