Nov. 13--The University of Alabama was recently accepted into a nonprofit consortium of more than 100 North American universities focused on research and training in the atmospheric and related Earth system sciences.

UA was one of six new member institutions added in October to the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, or UCAR.

"Joining UCAR will provide greater opportunities for our researchers to team together with outside agencies to provide forward-thinking solutions and leading-edge education in the area of atmospheric research," said Carl Pinkert, UA vice president for research and economic development.

The consortium manages the National Center for Atmospheric Research with sponsorship by the National Science Foundation. Through its community programs, UCAR supports and extends the capabilities of its academic consortium with training, resources and tools, access to atmospheric data, support for students, and collaborative experiments, workshops, and conferences.

Participating in UCAR will expand research collaborations and educational opportunities for UA students and faculty, said Patricia Sobecky, director of the Alabama Water Institute and associate provost for academic affairs.

"The accomplishments and interdisciplinary strengths of our science and engineering faculty in remote sensing, hydrological sciences, environmental sciences and related areas are advancing knowledge that will help prepare our state and nation to adapt to extreme weather events," Sobecky said.
