Welcome Alumni & Friends

The Department of Atmospheric Sciences welcomes all friends and alumni to our website and hopes you will enjoy keeping current with our activities. Although much has changed over the years, including our name (formerly Meteorology), the Department maintains its student-centered approach and remains a recognized center of research excellence in the atmospheric and related sciences. Our students, through the University of Utah Student Chapter of the American Meteorological Society, continue with extracurricular activities that enhance their professional development, such as performing educational outreach at local elementary and middle schools and producing specialized ski forecasts at We take great pride in your accomplishments and hope you will find the time to provide an update on your personal and professional adventures through our on-line directory and registry. Better yet, come visit us when you are in the area.
