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 and the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center is a key resource for modeling efforts. 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 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.
