The vision of the Societal Impacts Program, located within the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado, is to improve the societal gains from weather information by infusing social science research, methods, and applications throughout the weather enterprise.
SIP aims to be the premiere focal point for integrating social science and societal impacts understanding into the weather enterprise through cutting-edge research and capacity building.
The SIP Web site is currently being redesigned. Please look for the new layout and design to be released later this year.
