We offer excellent opportunities in research and graduate education. ATSC faculty and scientists are experts in both observational studies and numerical modeling and are internationally recognized for excellence in the following areas:
The University of Wyoming King Air research aircraft is the cornerstone of our observational facilities and the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center is a key resource for modeling efforts. 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.
