Doctoral Students

(For more information about PhD Programs, see Climate Dynamics Doctoral Program and Earth Science Graduate Program).

Climate Dynamics Student Organization

The students maintain a Climate Dynamics Student Organization which conducts a student journal club and other activities.

Chandran J. Shukla Fellowship: An endowed fund for academic assistance to Climate Dynamics students.
