Welcome to our Blog

Welcome to McGill’s Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Science blog. We are the largest university atmospheric-oceanic sciences group in Canada. We have academic programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, covering a broad range of topics, ranging in scale from the microphysics of raindrops to the global circulation patterns observed in the atmosphere and oceans. We currently has over 40 undergraduate and over 50 graduate students, many of whom come from abroad.

We have a rich history, and have leaders in various fields of atmospheric science and physical oceanography. Many of the researchers in our department are members of the The Global Environmental and Climate Change Centre and work on climate change problems. Graduates of our various programs move forward to have careers in industry, government and academia.

It is our hope that this blog will allow you to follow the many new and exciting discoveries that are taking place in the realm of atmospheric and oceanic science as well as let you remain up to date about the comings and goings of our dynamic department.
