The Department of Atmospheric Sciences is one of the largest meteorology programs in the nation and the only comprehensive undergraduate, graduate and research programs in Texas. Aggie meteorologists go on to serve in broadcast meteorology, government agencies and the military, teaching and research and private industry. Each day, our graduates help millions of people stay safe and weather-informed. Atmospheric sciences faculty, graduate students and undergraduate students conduct research across numerous branches of the discipline: atmospheric dynamics, boundary layer – surface interactions, climate dynamics and change, numerical modeling, atmospheric chemistry, aerosol – cloud interactions, synoptic and mesoscale meteorology and radiative transfer and remote sensing.
