The Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU) began in 1948, a decade before NASA. We are the world’s only research institute to have sent instruments to all eight planets and Pluto.
LASP combines all aspects of space exploration through our expertise in science, engineering, mission operations, and scientific data analysis. As part of CU, LASP also works to educate and train the next generation of space scientists, engineers and mission operators by integrating undergraduate and graduate students into working teams. Our students take their unique experiences with them into government or industry, or remain in academia to continue the cycle of exploration.
This year's partners include two additional CU Boulder organizations - CIRES (Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences) and ATOC (Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences).
At CIRES, a partnership of NOAA and CU Boulder, hundreds of environmental scientists work to understand the dynamic Earth system, including people's relationship with the planet.The Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (ATOC) at the University of Colorado Boulder provides a world-class, interdisciplinary research and educational environment to examine the dynamical, physical, and chemical processes that occur in the atmosphere and ocean. A major theme is the establishment of a physical basis for observing, modeling, and understanding climate and global change.
The Division of Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences (AGS) is the National Science Foundation's (NSF) section that focuses on extending intellectual frontiers in atmospheric and geospace sciences by making responsible investments in fundamental research, technology development, and education that enable discoveries and help attain a prosperous and sustainable future.
AGS Supports fundamental research regarding physical, chemical, and biological processes that impact the composition and physical phenomena and behavior of matter between the sun and the surface of the Earth. That includes a wide variety of important processes that impact humans and society, such as space weather events, tropospheric weather events, climate, and air quality. Because these processes can span a wide array of intellectual ground, AGS partners with other programs within Geosciences and across NSF Directorates, and with other federal agency partners, to help ensure that we are funding the best possible science.
Transformative science is often enabled and extended by state-of-the-art observational instrumentation and associated infrastructure, and the most capable computational hardware and software. Observational tools and infrastructure is supported by the individual programs at the relatively small scale, through the Geospace Facilities (GF) program, the Lower Atmosphere Observing Facilities (LAOF), and through our support of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), one of NSF's Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDC).
