|The UCAR Community Programs (UCP) consists of
eight programs which create, conduct, and coordinate projects
that strengthen education and research in the atmospheric, oceanic
and earth sciences.
The UCAR Community Programs successfully partner with the community to achieve specific goals and objectives: (1) providing premier leadership in building and hosting community projects that advance the national and international scientific and educational agenda, (2) providing innovative next-generation education and training services, (3) developing and transfering technologies to meet critical societal and community needs, (4) providing effective, state-of-the-art data services, and (5) delivering reliable and cost-effective support to meet diverse programmatic needs in the UCAR community. UCP enables researchers and educators to take on issues
and activities that require the combined and collaborative
capabilities of a broadly engaged scientific community.
