The Department of Atmospheric Sciences’ research program strives to understand the polar atmosphere and its role within the earth system. Our research projects are generally in conjunction with UAF’s Geophysical Institute and International Arctic Research Center. Projects utilize a variety of observational, modeling and remote sensing techniques and can be divided into several areas:
• Atmospheric Remote Sensing
• Atmospheric Chemistry
• Chemistry Transport Modeling
• Cloud/Aerosol Physics
• Climate Variability and Change
• Hydrometeorology
• Mesoscale Modeling
• Middle and Upper Atmosphere
We share a common interest in the physical, chemical, and dynamical processes of the polar atmosphere. Our interests cover a broad spectrum of topics in atmospheric sciences, with research results often bearing directly on society and issues surrounding climate variability and change. Many of us also maintain research interests in other regions of the globe."
