ATM Graduate Group

Our faculty includes nineteen faculty members from the Departments of Land, Air and Water Resources, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Physics, the Laboratory for Energy-Related Health Research, the Department of Environmental Science & Policy, and the National Institute for Global Environmental Change.

The Graduate Group in Atmospheric Science offers both M.S. and Ph.D. degree programs. Students can place major emphasis on graduate work in one or more of the following fields: atmospheric chemistry and air quality, biometeorology and micrometeorology, mesoscale and boundary-layer meteorologylarge-scale and climate dynamics, computational geosciences and extreme weather. The diverse and extensive backgrounds of the faculty allow opportunities for interdisciplinary training and research.

Preparation:
The Group encourages applications from all interested students with backgrounds in the physical or natural sciences. Basic qualifications for students entering the Atmospheric Science graduate program include mathematics to the level of vector calculus and differential equations, and one year of college-level physics. Considerable flexibility may be allowed for students with high academic potential, but it is expected that deficiencies in preparatory material and in key undergraduate atmospheric science courses be completed within the first year of graduate study.
