Extreme weather events, like those impacting millions of Americans this summer, threaten public safety, destabilize supply chains and damage vital infrastructure. Researchers from the University of Oklahoma and the Los Alamos National Laboratory have been awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to explore and simulate the atmospheric processes that lead to heatwaves, heavy precipitation, droughts and other potentially catastrophic weather events.

Megan McClellan's blend of education—in meteorology, mathematics, and business—helped her become a meteorologist and the director of digital services at WeatherCall, where she makes sure people receive the critical information they need to stay safe in severe weather.
Each semester, students in the College of Atmospheric and Geographic Sciences and its units receive awards and scholarships that make a direct differenence in their education and acknowledge the hard work they put toward their education day in and day out. These awards come from a variety of sources: directors' funds, generous donors, and trusts to name a few. We hold semesterly award ceremonies leading up to convocation to celebrate these students and their work.
