Several departments at Berkeley offer graduate education and research in the
atmospheric sciences and allied fields including the
Department of Chemistry;
Department of Civil and Environmental
Department of Earth and Planetary
Department of Environmental Science,
Policy and Management; and the
Department of Geography.
Here's a list of current and recent atmospheric science-related courses offered at Berkeley.
Our members have extensive and ongoing research projects on a variety of topics
on climate and atmosspheric science. For example: laboratory studies and
computer simulations of photochemistry and reaction dynamics; on linkages
between molecular level interactions and the global climate; tropical
ocean-atmosphere interactions; glacier and ice sheet dynamics;
studies of carbon-climate interactions; field and theoretical studies in
biosphere-atmosphere and ecosystem-climate interactions; elucidating sources,
atmospheric transport, and photochemical reactions associated with air
pollution; and laboratory and field-based measurements of trace gases in
different terrestrial ecosystems.
Prospective students should contact the BASC faculty members whose
interests are most closely aligned with theirs.
A list of core and affiliated faculty and
their research interests can be found here.

interested in them) include:
- Atmospheric Chemistry:
- Air Pollution:
- Biogeochemical Cycles:
- Climate Dynamics and Climate Change:
BASC also offers fellowship opportunities to outstanding graduate students.
