Offering Exceptional Opportunities in Research and Graduate Education
The Department of Atmospheric Science offers excellent opportunities in research and graduate education. ATSC faculty and staff maintain an international distinction for excellence in the following areas: airborne measurements and the development of in‐situ and remote sensing instrumentation for airborne and ground-based observing systems. Research areas include process studies of precipitation, cloud and aerosol physics, air quality and atmospheric chemistry, atmospheric boundary layer and regional and global climate modeling.
The University of Wyoming King research aircraft is the cornerstone of our observational facilities. The King Air research aircraft has been funded as a National Facility under cooperative agreements between the University of Wyoming and the National Science Foundation since 1988. The King Air has global reach, with recent international projects in the United Kingdom, Finland, Antigua, and Martinique. Instrumentation currently under construction includes a Raman lidar that will enable enhanced remote sensing of the atmosphere from the King Air. Our external funding level is one of the largest on campus.
As a nationally recognized research institution, UW's global impact begins at our very own doorstep with innovative graduate research opportunities. UW welcomes you to join a community of over 6,000 faculty and staff. Tradition, pride, leadership and excellence are just a few of the fundamental principles exercised at UW. A modest and warm community, offering the resources of a large university, UW provides an environment for success!
