Atmospheric Sciences/IAP

The Department of Atmospheric Sciences and the Institute of Atmospheric Physics offer a unique and varied program of graduate training and research in the atmospheric sciences. In the areas of satellite remote sensing, air-sea interactions, the physics of lightning flashes, weather prediction and climate, climate change, atmospheric chemistry and air pollution, our students and scientists are working to better understand our atmosphere and how it may be changing in response to human activities. Collaborative projects are underway with the National Weather Service forecast center on campus, Hydrology and Water Resources, the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research, Planetary Sciences/LPL, Applied Mathematics, Chemical and Environmental Engineering, the Medical School and others. Research is supported through grants from federal agencies such as NSF, NASA, NOAA, and DOD.
