Opportunities and Partnerships


At NCAR, we are committed to the health and safety of everyone who visits us. We are closely monitoring the coronavirus situation in the U.S. and internationally, and we are in contact with our local, state, and federal partners to receive guidance on how to proceed with our programs, including internships and fellowships.

Our Colorado and Wyoming facilities are currently closed, with staff working from home until further notice. NCAR has enacted a freeze on all scientific visitors to our campuses through September 1, 2020, and will review this guidance in late July. We are considering virtual options wherever possible.

Thank you for understanding this evolving situation. We hope to be able to host you in the future at NCAR.

As detailed in our strategic plan, ACOM conducts collaborative research focusing on two major scientific challenges, Air Quality Prediction Research and Interactions between Chemistry and the Climate/Weather System. The work is conducted in partnership with other entities within NCAR, and with other members of the wider atmospheric chemistry community. In particular, ACOM partners with University scientists to address scientific issues related to atmospheric chemistry.

To maintain these partnerships and collaborations and, in keeping with its role as a national center to provide both intellectual leadership and facility support to the wider community, ACOM supports very active visitor and post-doctoral programs, that augment and support related NCAR- and UCAR-wide programs. ACOM scientists are also actively engaged in various educational activities, for example, acting as mentors for the UCAR SOARS program, serving on University thesis committees, and lecturing at Universities. In order to support graduate students from underrepresented communities, ACOM created the Ralph Cicerone Fellowship in Earth System Science.
