EOL's organizational structure is designed to optimize our management and operation of the Lower Atmosphere Observing Facilities (LAOF), support of our community through the LAOF deployment and data provision, and development of new observational facilities. The Laboratory structure consists of five organizational Facilities and the EOL Directorate.

The Research Aviation Facility (RAF), In-situ Sensing Facility (ISF), and Remote Sensing Facility (RSF), operate and support our aircraft, airborne instrumentation, and ground-based platforms and instrumentation and advance developments of new observing systems and technologies. The Data Management and Services (DMS) Facility provides management and services associated with field campaign data. The Design and Fabrication Services (DFS) Facility provides instrument design and fabrication support not only for EOL, but for other groups within NCAR as well as the university community.

The EOL Directorate, in addition to the EOL Director, Assistant Director for Operations and the Laboratory Administrator, includes several groups that provide a range of support activities to the Laboratory, including the EOL Administration group, the Project Management Office (PMO), the Computing and Web Infrastructure Group (CWIG), and the Outreach and Communications Group.

Our organizational structure and top-notch leaders in their fields allow EOL to be at the forefront of innovation in both field campaign support and development of new technologies and applications, as well as to provide excellent, efficient service to the atmospheric research community and to set an example with regard to our commitment to diversity, professional development, and community involvement.

EOL's staff is the backbone of the support we are able to provide to the university community and are as important and valuable to that community as the physical LAOF we deploy.
