Research Highlight

New perspectives on our atmosphere
The atmosphere surrounds us, protects us, and impacts our daily lives. From the quality of the air we breathe, to the weather, to the climate we depend on, this complex system still holds many mysteries for scientists. But thanks to cutting edge technology, researchers in the Department of Soil, Water, and Climate are getting new perspectives on what’s happening in Earth’s atmosphere.


Environmental Leadership Program Fellowships
ELP Fellowships offer intensive leadership and skills training, time for personal and professional reflection, and the opportunity to learn and collaborate with regional and national networks.
