Atmospheric Science at Indiana University is a dynamic program with exciting opportunities to undertake field, laboratory, or modeling research. The program integrates research across scales, from boundary layer turbulence to mesoscale phenomena including deep moist convection to global circulation dynamics. Our faculty members actively conduct research in radiative forcing and climate change, tropical cyclone morphology using the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model, to global climate researching using state-of-the-art climate models, and satellite remote sensing and GPS occultation methods. We are active users of IU’s high-performance parallel computing facilities, which include two new super-computing machines: KARST and Big Red II, which ranks as one of the world's fastest 70 supercomputers.
