Atmospheric Science Research at the ESSE Department

Research and teaching activities span a broad range of atmospheric science topics from aerosol chemistry, cloud microphysics and small-scale turbulence, micro, meso and synoptic scale meteorology to global scale phenomena affecting weather, climate, air quality and the ozone layer. Studies of the atmosphere of Mars and other planets are also undertaken.

There are excellent opportunities for collaborative research with the Meteorological Service of Canada and with other research groups both in Canada and abroad. Department members have been active in the Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society and the Canadian Foundation for Climate and Atmospheric Sciences. The Lassonde School of Engineering at York University is a member of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, which operates the U.S. National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado.
