Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Match

This match has ended.

We are one of the leading departments in the field of atmospheric and oceanic sciences, with nationally recognized graduate and undergraduate programs. Our faculty have long maintained breadth and special strength in three areas: climate systems, including the ocean; satellite and remote sensing; and weather systems, including synoptic-dynamic meteorology. We are able to maintain our reputation and the work we do because of the generous gifts we receive from alumni and friends. Your gift supports our students, faculty, and staff as they continue to transform the field. 

The Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (AOS) depends more than ever on the generosity of alumni and friends to ensure the continued excellence of our programs and resources. We need support for students to travel to conferences and participate in field research around the world. Our department is rapidly growing, and we need sustained support for new faculty and staff as they begin to build research programs. We also seek funding to strengthen our diversity and inclusivity initiatives and public outreach. 

Thank you for your commitment to AOS and current and future leaders in climate, weather, and ocean research. On, Wisconsin!
