UAH is ranked by the NSF in the top 20 in the nation for federal funding of research in aeronautical & astronautical engineering, astronomy, atmospheric science, computer science, and management & economics, and is in the top 20 in total research funding from Department of Defense and NASA. In 2014, UAH was named by PayScale Inc. as the best return on investment (ROI) among all Alabama schools for both in-state and out-of-state students. It was also ranked in the top 100 nationwide. 

The Huntsville metropolitan area is a culturally diverse community with a population of about 400,000 and a high concentration of technical professionals. 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, recently ranked 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, environmental science, human-environment dynamics, climate, data assimilation, nowcasting, chemistry, air pollution, lightning, hurricanes, tornadoes and other severe weather (http://www.uah.edu/science/departments/atmospheric-science/research).  These research activities frequently support NASA programs such as the SPoRT (Short‐term Prediction Research and Transition) Center (http://weather.msfc.nasa.gov/sport), SERVIR (http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/servir/) that focus on applications of remote sensing, and the Global Hydrology Resource Center (https://ghrc.nsstc.nasa.gov/home/) that provides NASA Earth Science Data and associated tools and technologies for scientific, educational, commercial and governmental communities.

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 (http://www.uah.edu/science/departments/atmospheric-science/ats-students). The undergraduate ESS degree in the Department is built upon a set of interdisciplinary core courses including the Earth’s climate system, remote sensing, hydrology, public policy, and pollution problems. ESS students select from the following three specialty tracks: Atmospheric Science/Meteorology, GIS & Remote Sensing, and Human Dimensions/Societal Impacts (http://www.uah.edu/science/departments/earth-systems).

The SWIRLL operates significant facilities such as the ARMOR (fixed) and MAX (mobile) dual‐polarized Doppler radars, MIPS – mobile profiling system, ozone and other lidars, GPS sounding station, radiosonde and ozonesonde stations, lightning mapping array, and electronics laboratories.
