What will I learn?

Atmospheric science concerns the study of processes in the atmosphere, from the planetary boundary layer to the ionosphere. Applications relate to the analysis and prediction of weather and climate.

These are exciting times in atmospheric sciences. It is a time of rapid growth, increased public awareness, and social relevance for our field. The atmospheric sciences include the disciplines of meteorology and climatology, which apply mathematics and the basic physical sciences to understand a very complex natural system. The scope of the field ranges from the small space and time scales of turbulent phenomena, through the diagnosis and prediction of weather events in meteorology, to continental and global scale climate change processes.
