Faculty and Research

Research has been central to the department’s activities since its inception. Despite the department’s modest size, an impressive array of research projects are being undertaken by our faculty and students involving field work, experimental work, computer modeling, and theoretical calculations. Our research interests have a primary focus on weather and climate of the tropics, but many projects have application to phenomena of global scope. [ More ]
