Atmospheric Science is a basic physical science which involves the study of the structure of the atmosphere and the processes which generate storms and other features of weather and climate. As an environmental science, Atmospheric Science is a focal point for research involving environmental quality and air pollution, global climate change, water resources, and severe weather events.
The Atmospheric Science Group at Texas Tech University maintains a strong commitment to both teaching and research in Atmospheric Science. Major areas of research include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Thunderstorms, Tornadoes and Lightning
- Boundary Layer Processes
- Wind Power Meteorology
- Instrumentation and Data Analysis
- Human Biometeorology and Climatology
- Numerical Weather Prediction
