Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences
Understanding the sources of climate change and extreme weather.
As the impact of climate change and extreme weather is felt across the globe, there has never been a more important time to train atmospheric and environmental scientists who can address these challenges. From better understanding and prediction of extreme weather events to advanced climate studies and climate impacts, UAlbany’s Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences (DAES) offers some of the most sophisticated academic programs in atmospheric and environmental sciences in the U.S.
The current group of scientists in DAES covers a broad range of interests in the atmospheric and environmental sciences. With their broad portfolio of research interests, the Department of Atmospheric and Environmental sciences faculty offer students opportunities to work with world-class researchers on projects inspired by some of the most pressing questions and challenges facing humankind.
