The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) was established by the National Science Foundation in 1960 to provide the university community with world-class facilities, capabilities that were beyond the reach of any individual institution. More than a half-century later, NCAR is still delivering on that mission. NCAR develops and applies state-of-the-art resources, including supercomputers, research aircraft, sophisticated computer models, and extensive data sets to empower the university community to solve complex scientific problems related to earth systems science. Our staff of preeminent researchers and engineers work with a wide range of collaborators to take on the current global-scale environmental challenges that are unprecedented in modern history, including weather extremes, wildfires, air pollution, and solar storms. This work is focused advancing fundamental understanding of the Earth as a coupled system — the atmosphere, oceans, land, cryosphere, geospace,
and the Sun — and how it interacts and is influenced by human systems. Providing society with actionable solutions to these challenges is a result of this work.
NCAR also provide rich education and outreach opportunities, from fellowships for early career scientists to free public lectures to scientific workshops. NCAR hosts faculty and student visitors from across the US and the international community to collaborate with our scientists. Dr. Joseph in his seminar will provide an overview of NCAR, review some of the latest research and how NCAR is positioning itself for success in the future. He will also talk about ways students and faculty can collaborate with NCAR to advance their research.

Everette Joseph joined NCAR as director in 2019 from the University at Albany, State University of New York, where he was the director of the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center. While there, Joseph co-led the $30.5 million New York State Mesonet for advanced weather detection and the New York State Center of Excellence for the Weather Enterprise. He has served as principal or co-principal investigator on over $90 million in research grants from NSF, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration, NASA, the Army High Performance Computing Research Center, and other agencies. Joseph has been a member of the Board on Atmospheric Sciences and Climate of the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, on the Steering Committee of the NASEM Decadal Survey for Earth Science and Applications from space; the NOAA Science Advisory Board; and the American Meteorological Society Commission on the Weather, Water and Climate Enterprise. He also is principal
investigator for the NSF-sponsored US-Taiwan Program for International Research and Education and co-PI on the NOAA Aerosol and Ocean Science Expeditions.
