About Us

Since 1974, the Department of Atmospheric Sciences has grown into a well-known and well-respected program. We believe hands-on experience and real-world practice is the best way to learn the theory of weather and climate. Knowledgeable faculty teach courses focused on undergraduate education. Students have a wide variety of experiential learning opportunities across a diverse curriculum. We teach and conduct research in a state-of-the-art facility that was specifically designed for our department.


The Northern Vermont University-Lyndon Department of Atmospheric Sciences provides a high-quality educational experience to students who are passionate about weather and climate. We do so by offering a modern curriculum that integrates theory and hands-on learning in a supportive environment. We value challenging and helping students as they focus their education among a broad range of career interests.
