The well known research expertise in the School of Meteorology is the study of convective storms and mesoscale circulations utilizing high-resolution modeling and observational analysis including advanced radar systems and ground-based remote sensing. An outside review of the School during its last Academic Performance Review placed the School as a world-leading institution in these areas. This excellence is based on the close proximity and collaboration with the University’s research centers, the Climate Science Center and the National Severe Storms Laboratory. However, the research portfolio of the School has broadened in recent years to include topics ranging from polar meteorology to climate variations and atmospheric chemistry. Please see the link below for a series of slides describing our research.
