Atmospheric science applies theories of physics, mathematics, chemistry and new detection technologies to study the processes and mechanisms involved in atmospheric movements and climate change, and explore the physical and chemical processes of the migration and transformation of matter and energy in the atmosphere, as well as the impact of human activities on the atmospheric environment. The main research interests include: (1) Atmospheric Physics and Atmospheric Environment; (2) Climate and Global Change; and (3) Atmospheric Detection and Remote Sensing. The teaching team includes 1 Academician of American Academy of Arts and Sciences, 11 full professors, and 7 associate professors. Nearly 30% of our teachers are sponsored by talents plans on different levels. In the past five years, the department has undertaken more than 50 research projects, and published more than 200 scientific papers in peer reviewed journals. Since the establishment in 1958 with the University of Science and Technology of China, we have educated a number of outstanding scientists, making a great contribution to the development of atmospheric science.
