Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences - How Gifts Make a Difference

The Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences 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 field campaigns around the world. Our department is rapidly growing, and we need continued support for new faculty and staff as they begin to build research programs. We also seek funding to support our diversity and inclusivity initiatives as well as to support outreach and public activities that benefit the university, Wisconsin, and national organizations.

Why We Need Your Support

We have grown into 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 helps to support our students, faculty, and staff, as they continue to transform the field.
