What do we study?Atmospheric science is the study of the physics, chemistry, and dynamics of gases, clouds, and aerosols that surround the planetary bodies of the solar system. At HU, research is extended beyond the usual bounds of the atmosphere to include the interplanetary medium and processes of "space weather" affecting Earth and other planets.How do I get involved?
The HU Department of Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences (APS) offers a course of study leading to Ph.D. and M.S. degrees. Students from a variety of academic disciplines are welcome, and the curriculum maintains a flexibility to match individual interest.

Partners + CAS
CAS is dedicated to increasing the participation of minorities in the fields of Atmospheric, Space, and Planetary sciences. The research center, CAS, and its academic department, APS, maintains strong partnerships with many national, international, private, and higher education institutions.
Ariana C. Atwell
Master’s Student, Atmospheric Science Ariana Atwell is working on the Evolution of Aerosol due to the 2011 Nabro Eruption in Eritrea, Africa using CALIPSO and HYSPLIT forward-trajectories. The Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO) is a NASA satellite launched into the Afternoon Constellation (A-Train) in 2006. The A-Train Constellation orbits the earth, and […]Read More
