Atmospheric Science

The Department offers M.S. and Ph.D. degree programs in a wide variety of research topics in atmospheric and environmental sciences. Taught by scientists from the Department, and the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center (ASRC), students are exposed to faculty and research that is funded externally by agencies such as the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Office for Naval Research (ONR), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Air Force Office for Scientific Research (AFOSR) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). The ASRC and the local office of the National Weather Service (NWS) are both located in the Center for Environmental Sciences and Technology Management (CESTM), which is within easy walking distance of the Department. Opportunities exist for internships and cooperative research with the Albany National Weather Service office which is also located on the University campus.
