Our department’s strength and diversity provides a unique opportunity for both undergraduate and graduate students to participate in the faculty’s teaching and research activities. Students may choose to work in research areas, such as weather and climate systems analysis and modeling, synoptic and dynamic meteorology, physical meteorology, radar and satellite remote sensing, physical oceanography, atmospheric chemistry and physics, air-sea interactions, along with air quality, and climate change science.
This website contains useful information for prospective students, including detailed descriptions of our department's research activities. It contains group activities and links to centers of research, individual research member's activities and interests as well as application forms for both undergraduate and graduate programs, course listings and aspects of living in the cosmopolitan and exciting environment of the city of Montreal.
The Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences is located in Burnside Hall in the downtown Montreal Campus. The department is equipped with state-of-the-art computational, observational and laboratory facilities. The department's infrastructure also includes the Marshall radar facility in the West Island of Montreal.
AOS is addressing our society’s most crucial climate change issues through a unique combination of observations, modeling, and theory of our atmosphere and oceans. We invite you to consider joining us in our quest for a much deeper understanding of our earth system.
