Climate Dynamics Ph.D. Degree

The mission of the Ph.D. Degree Program in Climate Dynamics is to train the next generation of world leaders in the science of climate dynamics. Graduates of the program will have learned to carry out independent and innovative scientific research in climate dynamics. This may include emphasis on atmospheric dynamics, land surface processes or oceanography, but a familiarity with the interactions between the elements of the Earth system is essential. The graduate will have a demonstrated ability in theory, numerical modeling, or advanced data analysis. The core curriculum is designed to cover the essential knowledge base, which all students are expected to master.
