Atmosphere takes center stage at World Affairs Conference

Climate and weather, including space weather, will have an unusually high profile at the 52nd Conference on World Affairs (CWA). UCAR and NOAA are collaborating to bring two science panels to the conference, held each spring at CU-Boulder. The panels are being convened in celebration of NOAA's 30th and NCAR's 40th anniversaries. As with most of the CWA, the panels are free and open to the public. For more information, watch for announcements in This Week at UCAR or contact Susan Foster, ext. 2108, susanf@ucar.edu. See the CWA Web site.
