Department of Atmospheric Science

The Department of Atmospheric Science offers excellent opportunities in graduate education and research, using both observations and numerical modeling. ATSC faculty and scientists are internationally recognized for excellence in the following areas:

The University of Wyoming King Air research aircraft is the cornerstone of our observational facilities, with field campaigns across the US and internationally. The King Air research aircraft is funded as a National Facility under a cooperative agreement between the University of Wyoming and the National Science Foundation. The next-generation King Air facility is currently being build, with several new instruments on the horizon.
We also have unparalleled access to the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center, in support of our weather and climate modeling research.
The UW Department of Atmospheric Science Strategic endorses the American Meteorological Society statement on racism and injustice, and aims to create an environment that fosters diversity, equality, and inclusion.
