Welcome to the Department of Atmospheric Science
at Colorado State University
Our top-rated department focuses on graduate education,
cutting-edge research, and public service. We currently have
17 faculty members, nearly one hundred graduate students,
approximately 50 full-time researchers, and an outstanding and dedicated support staff. Our diverse areas of
include Cloud Microphysics, Severe Storms and Mesoscale Meteorology, Atmospheric Chemistry and Air Quality, Radiation and Remote Sensing,
Climate and Atmosphere-Ocean Dynamics, and Global Biogeochemical Cycles and Ecosystems.
We offer graduate degrees at both the M.S. and Ph.D. levels.
The department was founded in 1962 by renowned tropical meteorologist Herbert Riehl and
celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2012.
CSU Atmospheric Science is a leading global institution, and as such, all members of our community regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, physical ability, age, socioeconomic status or nationality are welcome as equal contributors. We value and appreciate diversity, and we believe that diversity on our campus strengthens our entire scientific community.

Global Precipitation Mission
The Department of Atmospheric Science is involved in the NASA and JAXA Global Precipitation Mission
The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission is an international network of satellites that provide the next-generation global observations of rain and snow. Building upon the success of the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM), the GPM concept centers on the deployment of a “Core” satellite carrying an advanced radar/radiometer system to measure precipitation from space and serve as a reference standard to unify precipitation measurements from a constellation of research and operational satellites. Through improved measurements of precipitation globally, the GPM mission will help to advance our understanding of Earth's water and energy cycle, improve forecasting of extreme events that cause natural hazards and disasters, and extend current capabilities in using accurate and timely information of precipitation to directly benefit society.
