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 recently
celebrated its 50th anniversary.

F-101B Used For Severe Storm ResearchAround 1974, Colorado State University operated an F-101B aircraft as shown in this image. During its time under CSU control, the aircraft carried the civilian serial number N8234 and the nickname, ‘the grey ghost’. This aircraft was used to study severe storms under the direction of Professor Peter Sinclair of the Department of Atmospheric Science. During the program, it was based at the Buckley Air National Guard Base in Denver.
CSU contracted with Flight Test Research, Inc., of California who provided an experienced test pilot named Jim Lucy. Dr. Sinclair rode in the back seat running the instrumentation after selecting the storm to be penetrated. Most flights were made over northern Colorado and western Nebraska in thunderheads of 35,000 to 45,000 feet where the plane encountered high turbulence, lightning, and hail.
The plane was nicknamed "The Gray Ghost: which became its call sign. The CSU F-101 was returned to the Air Force and is now located at the Air Museum in Topeka, Kansas."
