CIRA

Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere

Event Introduction


This year’s Cooperative Research Programs (CoRP) Science Symposium will be held in person on July 25th to 27th, 2022 at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA) of Colorado State University located in Fort Collins, CO. The Symposium brings together members from the NOAA and academic community to discuss the latest developments in satellite remote sensing research and applications. The Symposium targets multidisciplinary research with a focus on early-career scientists and is part of a larger strategy to promote federal and academic partnerships and collaborations.  This year’s event will focus on building stronger connections between NOAA’s Cooperative Institutes (CIs) and Cooperative Science Center (CSC) faculty and students to promote a more diverse NOAA workforce in the future, with an emphasis on CI-affiliated students, postdocs, and junior scientists as conduits for collaboration.

In-Person Meetings and COVID Policies


We are still planning to convene the 2022 NOAA CoRP Science Symposium as an in-person event and will follow all Colorado State University COVID policies. You can read about the current COVID policies here: https://covid.colostate.edu/
