DAES welcomes new Fall 2018 graduate class

August 29, 2018 - The Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences (DAES) welcomed 19 new graduate students for the Fall 2018 semester, our second largest incoming class. As a result of this influx of new students, DAES now has 79 graduate students, which makes us one of the three largest atmospheric science graduate programs in the United States. The incoming class hails from nine different states, four different countries, and includes seven female students, who will research topics such as how hurricanes form, the predictability of Arctic storms, and the effects of atmospheric chemistry on climate. Fifteen of the 19 new students are supported on NSF, NASA, NOAA, and Office of Naval Research grants attained by DAES and ASRC faculty.
