About

Atmospheric Science from Cornell University, concerns the study of processes in the atmosphere, from the planetary boundary layer to the ionosphere. Applications relate to the analysis and prediction of weather and climate. 

Overview

The graduate field of Atmospheric Science  from Cornell University, offers full financial support, including tuition, stipend, and health insurance, to all students accepted into our program.

 This means that we sometimes must decline applications from students who are very well qualified, but for whom we cannot identify support because the student's interests are not a good match for our research programs, or because of limited availability of external grant funds.
