Welcome!

Thank you very much for visiting our site, and a warm welcome from our department! Over the last 60 years, we have grown into one of the leading departments in our field of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences. We have strong graduate and undergraduate programs which are nationally recognized. We pursue research with a combination of theory, modeling, and diagnostic studies. We support this work with a foundation of first-year graduate core courses, and an appealing range of electives for both graduate and undergraduate students. (more...)

Give to AOS!

The Department has a variety of needs that benefit from the generous financial support of our Alumni. We encourage you to consider whether you think you can assist us by visiting the Gift Giving link below.

Prof. Zhengyu Liu publishes paper on AMOC

Prof. Zhengyu Liu, in collaboration with a research team led by a former UW student Wei Liu, has published a paper on the recent issue of Science Advances on Jan. 4th. Their new finding suggests that in current climate models, the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) may be too stable in response to future climate forcing, such as the rising CO2 and melting water of Greenland. Therefore, future climate change may be more abrupt than predicted by present IPCC models.  This study highlights the importance of continued understanding and improvement of climate models.
Future climate may change faster than predicted by IPCC models
