While attending the ICDC7 Conference, you will have a free afternoon on Thursday, September 29. If you are interested, you are invited to tour a local scientific facility
(options described below). Bus transportation between the hotel and
tour site will be offered. Bus seats are limited, so participation is
on a "first come, first served" basis. If you would like to tour one of
the facilities listed below, please make your choice here and submit
the form by 31 August 2005. You will be contacted by email to confirm participation.
Should you have any questions regarding the tours, please contact Anne Oman at email@example.com
- NCAR's Research Aviation Facility at Jefferson County Airport (RAF):
The mission of the Research Aviation Facility
is to develop and operate instrumented research aircraft for the
atmospheric science community at a level of sophistication and
operational complexity not generally available elsewhere. This facility
houses NCAR's C-130 and Gulfstream V research airplanes, airborne CO2,
CO, O3, and H2O instrumentation, tower-based CO2 instrumentation,
high-precision atmospheric O2 instrumentation, and an O2 and CO2
- National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL): NREL develops renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies and practices,
advances related science and engineering, and transfers knowledge and
innovations to address the nation's energy and environmental goals.
- National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA): NOAA
conducts research and gathers data about the global oceans, atmosphere,
space and sun, and applies this knowledge to science and service that
touch the lives of all Americans. Visitors to the Boulder facility will tour CMDL's working laboratory, analyzing air
samples collected worldwide and observe the Space Environment Center's 24/7
operations, forecasting solar activities that affect Earth’s systems. For more information, visit http://www.cmdl.noaa.gov/ccgg/index.html and http://www.spaceweather.noaa.gov/
- National Ice Core Laboratory (NICL): Visitors to the 743.2 square meters National Ice Core Laboratory, jointly operated by the
National Science Foundation and the United States Geological Survey, will be provided
with information on current research projects, view the –35°C ice core storage facility,
visit the Class 100 clean room maintained at –22°C, and view thin sections of ice.
Currently 1500 meters of ice are in storage from various locations. Full meter imagery
and electro-conductivity instruments will be demonstrated and data from the physical
