Climate Dynamics Doctoral Program
Our students learn about how the atmosphere, ocean, and land surface work together to determine the climate. In collaboration with internationally-known scientists, students conduct independent work to further our understanding of climate, how it varies, and how much of it we can predict. Tools in the program include cutting-edge climate models, sophisticated statistical techniques, and comprehensive data sets. Our graduates have gone on to work at top laboratories and universities.
The Climate Dynamics Program welcomes both full-time and part-time students. Many part-time students are professionals at Washington-area Federal laboratories where climate-related work is conducted.
The Climate Dynamics Program benefits from close ties with Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies (COLA), a laboratory dedicated to studying the predictability of climate. In the summer of 2013, COLA moved to George Mason University’s Fairfax Campus.
