Thank you and welcome!
Cecilia Bitz, Chair
Department of Atmospheric Sciences

Thank you for visiting the Department of Atmospheric Sciences Giving Page to explore opportunities to support the people and programs you care about most. The Department of Atmospheric Sciences is proud of its excellence in teaching, its faculty’s research, and the many accomplishments of our students, postdocs, and alumni. 

From studying global-scale circulation down to a single cloud droplet, faculty and students in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences are immersed in innovative research and education to help predict atmospheric changes and how those changes have the greatest impact. As one of the top three atmospheric sciences programs in the nation for undergraduate and graduate education, our faculty and students cross boundaries by using physics, chemistry, and mathematics to understand how our atmosphere touches all aspects of life on Earth.

By embarking on innovative projects and initiatives, the Department of Atmospheric Sciences is committed to examining climate, weather, and air quality issues and exploring solutions to build a more resilient future in the face of change. Your support will help enhance our educational and research programs in these areas.
