Since 1948 we have grown into one of the leading departments in our field of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences
. We have strong graduate and undergraduate programs which are nationally recognized. We graduate about 15 Ph.D. and M.S. students each year; our graduates are active in research labs and universities around the world. We graduate approximately 20 B.S. students each year; they choose options allowing a focus on weather systems or general atmospheric science.
Our faculty of 17 has long maintained breadth and special strength in three areas:
- Climate systems, including the ocean
- Satellite and remote sensing
- Weather systems, including synoptic-dynamic meteorology
We pursue research with a combination of theory, modeling, and diagnostic studies. We support this work with a foundation of first-year graduate core courses, and an appealing range of electives for both graduate and undergraduate students.
