Despite its modest size, the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa (UH Mānoa) has earned both national and international acclaim for its research and is a part of the renowned School of Ocean and Earth Sciences and Technology. In a field often dominated by men, three distinguished female faculty are further elevating the department’s research and prestige, making atmospheric waves in climate modeling and cloud microphysics.
