Welcome to the website for the School of Meteorology at the University of Oklahoma. The School is most well known for international leadership in the areas of severe storms, mesoscale dynamics, convective-scale modeling and radar research. However, our expertise also includes atmospheric chemistry, monsoon circulations, polar studies, boundary layer and urban meteorology, climate, data assimilation, tropical meteorology, lightning, dynamics and cloud physics. Our co-location in the National Weather Center with various federal and state partners along with nearby private sector firms allows our students to gain valuable experience and a broad prospective on the state of the atmospheric sciences.
The School of Meteorology at the University of Oklahoma is the largest such program in the nation, with more than 300 undergraduate and 110 graduate students. It is ranked in the top ten of all atmospheric sciences graduate programs in the nation by the Chronicles of Higher Education.

The School of Meteorology is most well known for national leadership in the areas of severe storms, mesoscale dynamics, convective-scale modeling and radar studies. We are much more than severe weather research at SoM, covering such research areas as boundary layer and urban meteorology, climate, data assimilation, tropical meteorology, lightning, cloud physics, dynamics, and even polar studies.
