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
celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2012.
CSU Atmospheric Science is a leading global institution, and as such, all members of our community regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, physical ability, age, socioeconomic status or nationality are welcome as equal contributors. We value and appreciate diversity, and we believe that diversity on our campus strengthens our entire scientific community.

Orbiting Carbon Observatory Launch
The Department of Atmospheric Science participated in the launch of the Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 satellite.
NASA successfully launched its first spacecraft dedicated to studying atmospheric carbon dioxide at 2:56 a.m. PDT (5:56 a.m. PDT) on Wednesday, July 2, 2014. Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) is NASA’s first dedicated Earth remote sensing satellite to study atmospheric carbon dioxide from Space. OCO-2 is an exploratory science mission designed to collect space-based global measurements of atmospheric CO2 with the precision, resolution, and coverage needed to characterize sources and sinks (fluxes) on regional scales (=1000km). OCO-2 will also be able to quantify CO2 variability over the seasonal cycles year after year. This mission will also validate a space-based measurement apporach and analysis concept that could be used for future systematic CO2 monitoring missions.
