As chair of the Department of Atmospheric Sciences, I would like to welcome you to our website and provide you with a quick overview of our program. The Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Utah is a mid-sized program with 11 tenure-line faculty and 10 research faculty with expertise spanning nearly all of the major subdivisions of atmospheric sciences. We offer Bachelor of Science (B.S.), Master of Science (M.S.), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees. Our faculty have national and international reputations and were awarded more than $4 million dollars in research grants and contracts in the last fiscal year. Our faculty use this money to participate in field projects, buy or build instrumentation, travel to conferences, publish research results, and provide both graduate and undergraduate students with opportunities to participate in cutting-edge research projects.
