Data Center Description
The Atmospheric Science faculty conduct diverse teaching, research, and
outreach programs that can be applied to important environmental issues. Early
research included studies of radiative transfer and boundary layer meteorology.
Modern remote sensing techniques rely in part on the early research of Coulson.
More recent research on agricultural burning has resulted in residue handling
and field burning techniques that have greatly reduced smoke production.

Current sectional research is focused on climate dynamics and climate change,
air quality, atmospheric chemistry, biometeorology, and medium and large-scale
atmospheric dynamics. Recent acquisition of an instrumented aircraft has
enhanced studies of pollutant transport to remote areas.
