Welcome to the UAH AMS Website


Above: AMS Members, 2016-2017 Academic Year.

Welcome to The University of Alabama in Huntsville Student Chapter of The American Meteorological Society. We are a student-led organization whose purpose is to join together the students from the UAH Atmospheric Science Department through education, research, outreach, and social events. Our group is made up of almost 50 students from different backgrounds all over the world including the United States, India, South Africa, China, Greece, and South Korea. Our department is involved in various kinds of research that includes climate change, atmospheric chemistry, lightning, hurricanes, severe weather, aviation safety, and air pollution. We are located in north Alabama, home of the 4th largest research park in the world, where some of the finest research facilities are down the street or simply down the hall! Students have the opportunity to conduct research with other scientists and forecasters from NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center and the NOAA/NWS Forecast Office. You can obtain your M.S. or your Ph.D. in atmospheric science here with a background in meteorology, physics, chemistry, mathematics, engineering, or any other related science. The university has also recently added a B.S. in Earth System Science with 7 specialty tracks. During their spare time, the students here enjoy socializing together through playing intramural sports, visiting the local art shows, traveling around north Alabama picking pumpkins, or simply just hanging out together. So, check us out and feel free to email any of us with any questions regarding our research, classes, or UAH in general.
