I lived in the Northeast for most of my life, and now that I’m in the Midwest I miss out on the fun of repeated blizzards, an earthquake, and a hurricane. Ok, natural disasters usually aren’t fun, but I can’t help but be amazed by how powerful nature can be. I’m sure a lot of you will never read this (or read it late) since there are 4 million people without power because of Hurricane Irene, but that’s not going to stop us from taking a look at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research. They are “a non-profit consortium of more than 75 universities offering Ph.D.s in the atmospheric and related sciences.” UCAR is based in Boulder, CO and they also work with the National Science Foundation to run the National Center for Atmospheric Research.

A Workplace with Atmosphere

The ability to predict and track Hurricane Irene is just one of the many reasons that atmospheric research is important. Now might be a good time to dig into UCAR’s online resources and read up on things like the background on the science, people, and issues involved in hurricane research. UCAR’s mission is three-fold, it is to:

  • support, enhance, and extend the capabilities of the university community, nationally and internationally
  • understand the behavior of the atmosphere and related systems and the global environment
  • foster the transfer of knowledge and technology for the betterment of life on Earth

You might get a better sense for what UCAR does by watching this video that they’ve put together:

If you’re all about atmosphere, then you should take a look at UCAR’s Internships page. This will give you a rundown on most of the options, but you should also take a look at UCAR’s Jobs postings since there are a few intern positions posted there right now (in Computing, Web Development, and Film).
