History of the Department of Atmospheric Science

Department Ranked #1

    2010

Department Ranked #1

After 15 years of effort, the National Research Council has came out with rankings of Atmospheric Science, Meteorology, and Oceanography departments. There are many categories in the NRC data, but CSU's Department of Atmospheric Science came out number one in a number of categories. This ranked CSU as one of the top two colleges in the country.

Tenure track faculty positions in (1) clouds and mesoscale processes, and (2) surface-atmosphere interactions – with expertise in land-atmosphere coupling preferred.
