Data Center Description
The meteorology department at Lyndon State University wants its graduates to have an understanding of the atmosphere that enables them to make a positive contribution to their profession and to society. Because students may select from four different career tracks, this contribution could range from creating accurate weather forecasts, to communicating those efforts to clients or the public, to further advancing our understanding of the atmosphere through research endeavors. Regardless of their track, however, students are required to complete a core of study that gives them an essential foundation for understanding weather events.
