The area is home to more than 50 Fortune 500 companies including several federal research facilities – NASA Marshall Space Flight Center and the Army’s Missile Defense Agency, Material Command, Aviation and Missile Command, and Space and Missile Defense Command, as well as the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology. 

The Department of Atmospheric Science has a rich tradition as a productive graduate academic research unit, recentlyranked in the top ten by the Chronicle of Higher Education based on faculty research productivity index. It is co-located with the closely aligned Earth System Science Center, the National Weather Service and NASA in the National Space Science and Technology Center, thereby enabling students a unique collaborative experience. A cross-cutting theme of the Department is the development and application of remote sensing technology to Earth Science disciplines, including clouds, aerosols, land use/land cover change, climate, data assimilation, nowcasting, chemistry, air pollution, lightning, hurricanes, tornadoes and other severe weather. (http://www.uah.edu/science/departments/atmospheric-science/research/research). These research activities frequently support NASA activities such as the SPoRT (Short-term Prediction Research and Transition) Center (http://weather.msfc.nasa.gov/sport ) and SERVIR (http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/servir/ ).

The graduate programs in the Department of Atmospheric Science provide excellent training in research/analysis and interdisciplinary education to students interested in issues related to the environment, strengthening their capability to conduct research leading to transition of observational and numerical modeling products to public policy and decision making.
