New meterology students

What every new student should know

Meteorology is the study of the atmosphere and, as such, is a challenging applied science. A practitioner must use the basic tools of mathematics and physics in the investigation and understanding of fascinating and sometimes dangerous atmospheric phenomena. Students majoring in meteorology at Oswego will become acquainted with the fields of synoptic, dynamic, meso and micrometeorology as well as atmospheric and cloud physics, climatology, instruments and air pollution.
