Who We Are
The Coupling, Energetics, and Dynamics of Atmospheric Regions (CEDAR) is a Program funded by the National Science Foundation’s Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences Division with a mission to understand the fundamental properties of the space-atmosphere interaction region; identify the interconnected processes that define the local and global behavior, the evolution, and influence on the Sun-Earth system; and to explore the ionosphere-thermosphere predictability.
The upper atmosphere plays a vital role in separating interplanetary space from the lower atmosphere and our biosphere and hosts many of our space assets for monitoring, communication, and navigation. Understanding the coupled upper atmosphere on different spatio-temporal scales using ground-, space-based observations and numerical modeling play an important role in making progress towards predicting and potentially mitigating space weather and global change impacts on our society.
