Major Highlight - Atmospheric Sciences
Guliya ice cap drilling project - Tibet
The atmospheric sciences major explores systems that determine our weather and climate. Students learn about the interactions between the Earth's surface and the atmosphere that often lead to severe storms, droughts and floods, and global climate change. The curriculum fulfills courses required to apply for meteorology positions within the National Weather Service and other offices within the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Graduates are prepared to enter directly into the workforce as both operational and broadcast meteorologists, as well as research scientists in the private and public sectors. Students who elect to pursue a minor will study all aspects of weather and climate. They may elect to focus on local weather at the Earth's surface to global features that impact weather and climate around the world. See how atmospheric science majors studied wind patterns in the horseshoe. For more information, contact academic advisor, Nancy Coscia, at coscia.4@osu.edu.
