NCAR Faculty Fellowship Program seeks applicants
The NCAR Advanced Study Program is pleased to announce that the Faculty Fellowship Program (FFP) is now accepting applications for visits that occur between 1 June 2006 and 31 May 2008. The FFP is designed to foster fruitful and lasting intellectual collaborations between university faculty and the NCAR staff. It provides opportunities and resources for faculty employed at universities to work in residence at NCAR and enables NCAR scientists (including project and associate scientists and senior research associates) to spend a period of time in residence at U.S. universities.

Application deadline: 15 March 2006
Contact: Paula Fisher, NCAR/FFP, 303-497-1328
Faculty Fellowship Program


GTP workshop on magnetohydrodynamic modeling
NCAR will host a workshop in Boulder on 27-30 June 2006 sponsored by the Geophysical Turbulence Program. The workshop will bring together researchers using different approaches to the understanding of magnetohydrodynamic turbulence in general and to the generation of magnetic fields (the dynamo process), with particular emphasis on the geodynamo and other flows at low magnetic Prandtl number. The approaches considered are modeling, experiments, theory, and direct numerical simulations. To sign up, please see the Web site below.

Registration deadline: 1 June 2006
Contact: Liz Rothney, NCAR/GTP, 303-497-1351
GTP workshop


Two more IMAGe workshops on the way
NCAR's Institute for Mathematics Applied to Geosciences is holding two additional workshops as part of IMAGe's 2006 Theme of the Year, Emerging Mathematical Strategies for Multi-Scale and Stochastic Modeling of the Atmosphere and Climate. Each interdisciplinary workshop includes a tutorial research/expository component for the first two days and a contemporary research component for the last three days. Both workshops will be held at the NCAR Mesa Laboratory in Boulder. The workshops are:

  • Workshop III: Stochastic and Statistical Parameterization of Unresolved Features in the Atmosphere and Upper Ocean
    27 February-3 March 2006
  • Workshop IV: Multi-Scale Processes for Low Frequency Variability, Climate, and Climate Change Response
    15-19 May 2006

Funding is available to support attendance, with special emphasis given to graduate students and other young researchers. Those who are not working directly on the workshop topics but have an interest in the program are also encouraged to apply, as are members of underrepresented groups.

Workshop registration deadline:
25 February 2006 (Workshop III), 12 May 2006 (Workshop IV)
Financial support application deadline:
23 January 2006 (Workshop III), 7 April 2006 (Workshop IV)

Catch up on SCD services at the AMS annual meeting
NCAR's Scientific Computing Division invites you to join them on Tuesday, 31 January, in Atlanta at the American Meteorological Society's annual meeting. Beginning at 5:10 p.m., SCD will give a series of short presentations updating attendees on services relevant to universities. If interested, please RSVP to Janie Young (see below).

Schedule for SCD university updates at AMS meeting


Web tip: Stay abreast of federal budgets and action items with UCAR/OGA
The Web site of the UCAR Office of Government Affairs keeps readers informed of budget and regulatory actions that affect research in the atmospheric and related sciences. The site features transcriptions and Webcasts of relevant Congressional hearings, as well as community action alerts on pending legislation.
