Roadmap to Success

Degrees Available at SD Mines

The Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences Program offers advanced undergraduate and graduate courses leading to the master of science degree in atmospheric and environmental sciences, with specializations in meteorology or earth systems science, and the doctor of philosophy degree in atmospheric and environmental sciences (AES). Faculty members in the program actively conduct research with sponsorship from various federal agencies and the State of South Dakota.

The primary objective of the atmospheric sciences program is to give students a basic understanding of the factors influencing atmospheric phenomena, including solar and terrestrial radiation, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, microphysical and electrical processes in clouds, ecology, atmospheric chemistry, and biogeochemistry.
