Research Facilities

Atmospheric Science

The King Air Research Aircraft

The UW King Air research aircraft (N2UW) is a specially instrumented Raytheon King Air 200T (twin turbo-prop) designed and used for atmospheric research. The aircraft and its in situ and remote sensors (including the Wyoming Cloud Radar) constitute a national facility that can be requested by the NSF-funded community for deployments in the US and abroad. Deployments have focused on a variety of atmospheric processes and phenomena, including clouds and precipitation, air pollution, surface exchange and the boundary layer. We currently are developing a new research aircraft. Visit the UW King Air Research webpage to learn more.

 

The NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center

Located between Laramie and Cheyenne, the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center officially opened its doors in October 2012. Atmospheric scientists at UW enjoy privileged access to the NWSC resources to study weather, climate, air pollution and many other features of the Earth system. Learn more about the NWSC at http://nwsc.ucar.edu

 

Air Quality instruments and platforms

The Department operates a Mobile Air Quality Lab as well as several air quality monitoring stations across Wyoming. Several instruments are used in research or operations, and some of the instruments can be used on the UWKA as well. The leading question is to understand how emissions from oil and gas extraction impact the global climate (fugitive greenhouse gas emissions) and air quality in the Mountain West. Learn more here
