The NCAR Archives invites you to contribute photos and stories that demonstrate how you are experiencing the current COVID-19 situation. We are interested in how it has impacted your work and your experiences as part of this community. You can: upload pictures of yourself, your workspace, your current projects and how you have adapted them; your video meetings, documents, anecdotes, or anything else that expresses how and what you are doing now. Your creativity is welcomed!

Submitted materials will be added to a collection in the NCAR Archives and may be used in future historical research, or shared in exhibits and online collections. Thank you for adding to our recorded history of this unique moment.

This photo is featured in a new digital archival exhibit on the early history of NCAR.
