Home: Boulder, Colorado. Latitude 39.99°N, Longitude 105.26°W, Elevation 1700m. We are located on the Department of Commerce (DoC) Boulder Laboratories campus. The staff and their laboratories and offices are in the north block of the David Skaggs Research Center on this site. Included are airborne instrument development and testing labs, photochemical reaction labs, optical techniques labs, radar instrumentation labs, and computer workstations used in modeling of the chemistry of the atmosphere.

Facilities: Scientific observations of CSD go far beyond the home site and have at times extended from "pole to pole" on the Earth. Other facilities, namely the research aircraft, enable CSD scientists to carry their instrumentation into the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere. These aircraft include the NOAA Aircraft Operations Center WP3-D and the NASA WB-57. Field missions have taken CSD scientists to Antarctica, Greenland, Nova Scotia, and numerous other places - literally "to the ends of the Earth and points in between."
