Atmospheric Science Faculty cover a broad range of research topics that include observations,
numerical modeling, and synergy of the two. Faculty and scientists investigate questions
related to air quality, aerosol impacts on clouds, cloud and precipitation development,
small and large scale dynamics, and boundary-layer processes. Our faculty and students
have direct access to World Class facilities such as the Wyoming King Air Research Aircraft, the Wyoming Cloud Radar, the Wyoming Cloud Lidar, and the NCAR/Wyoming SuperComputer for this research.
Faculty are funded by several state and federal organizations such as the national
Science Foundation (NSF), Department of Energy (DOE), National Aeronautics and Space
Administration (NASA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), State of Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality,
and the Wyoming Water Development Commission. To learn more about our research and
