The NOAA Center for Atmospheric Sciences (NCAS) is one of the four NOAA cooperative centers established in 2001. The organization's main mission is to enhance the production of well-educated and highly qualified meteorology/atmospheric sciences graduates from traditionally underrepresented groups and to improve their representation in NOAA's workforce and that of the broader atmospheric sciences community. Its aim is to advance and improve the prediction of climate, weather, and air quality through integrated measurements, models and data analyses. From 2002 to 2006, NCAS has systematically built its research capabilities in observational, theoretical and numerical modeling studies. During this period, NCAS has also made significant accomplishments in graduate education and production of Ph.D. recipients.
