FL0 groundbreaking ceremonyOne of the most highly educated hard-hat crews in history gathered on October 12 to break ground for FL0, the new building on the Foothills campus. This four-story building will be located on the north side of FL buildings 2 and 3. It will house ACD, providing state-of-the-art labs as well as plenty of office and other necessary space. From left to right, the shovelers are Jarvis Moyers (NSF), UCAR trustee Kelvin Drogemeier (University of Oklahoma), Cliff Jacobs (NSF), Tim Killeen (director of NCAR), Rick Anthes (UCAR president), and Danny McKenna (director of ACD).
