The NASRDA Centre for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is a world class research and development center committed to research and capacity building in the atmospheric and related sciences. CAR is dedicated to understanding the atmosphere—the air around us—and the interconnected processes that make up the Earth system, from the ocean floor through the ionosphere to the Sun's core.
CAR was established by the National Space Research and Development Agency in 2013 to provide research community with state-of-the-art facilities and services that can compete with the international standard.
We continue to deliver on this mission for over a decade today. CAR provides the atmospheric and related Earth system science community with education opportunities, capacity-building, support and real-time observational datasets from reliable resources using advance equipment.
CAR staff comprises of scientists and engineers that works with collaborators at various universities and research institutions around the world to ensure the facilities and resources meets the demands and contributes in solving scientific challenges in policy making and national planning for a sustainable ecofriendly environment and conducive atmosphere for a living. This is communicated through scientific publications, outreach and workshops.
