ACOM Visitor Program

COVID-19 Status Update: May 5, 2023

UCAR's current Covid-19 status of operations has returned to nearly "business as usual," with some exceptions. Staff are able to return to Colorado and Wyoming facilities. Visitors may come onsite with advanced approval or notice. UCAR is currently working in a hybrid in-person/virtual environment.

Partnerships with the wider science community are at the heart of the NCAR mission, and are an important component of all research conducted within ACOM. Strong collaborations with University groups are in particular paramount to the NCAR and ACOM mission.

Through the Laboratory's Visitor Program, scientific and educational partnerships between ACOM and national and international members of the atmospheric chemistry community are enhanced. Scientists wishing to visit ACOM to conduct collaborative research should contact a member of the ACOM staff, who would serve as host for the visit. Opportunities of varying duration are available for visitors, from a one day visit to a year-long visit. Funding support may be available for some visits.  The ACOM Visitor Program serves to augment other NCAR and UCAR visitor, education and exchange programs, such as those sponsored by the NCAR Advance Study Program,, the UCAR UVISIT program,, and the UCAR Center for Science Education. Additional information for potential post-docs can be found at

Coordination of visits to ACOM is handled by the visitor's host and the Laboratory's administrative staff. The visitor's host must be an ACOM staff member. The administrative staff is available to answer questions about the program and to facilitate visits by handling all administrative needs. Prospective visitors should work with their hosts to determine the nature, duration and financial details of their visit. The administrative group will work with the visitor and visitor's host to handle the details.

For more information, contact Shaun Bush, ACOM's Visitor Administrator. Also, please visit UCAR Community Opportunities for more information on other types of visitor appointments.
