Welcome to the UCAR Quarterly
This is the first issue of UCAR's new quarterly publication. It is an
updated and, we hope, even more useful successor to the UCAR
Newsletter. In addition to familiar features such as the President's
Corner and Washington Update, the Quarterly incorporates
some new ones. These include regular updates on UCAR educational
activities, profiles of UCAR Members and Affiliates, and condensed
science news notes from UCAR member and affiliate institutions.
Items that require quick dissemination, such as announcements,
appointments, job openings, and the calendar, now appear every
Thursday on our new electronic publication, UCARline. To subscribe
to UCARline, send an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org with
no subject line and only the words "subscribe ucarline" in the body.
We hope you like these new publications and welcome any comments
