The Princeton University Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences graduate program emphasizes theoretical studies and numerical model studies of the global climate system, and applicants should have a strong background in natural sciences and mathematics.
- The AOS program benefits from access to the research capabilities of the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
- Many GFDL scientists are active in the AOS program as lecturers, and students in the program have access to major supercomputer resources within GDFL for their research.
- The Department of Geosciences, with its activities in physical and chemical oceanography, paleoclimatology, and atmospheric sciences, provides a comprehensive program of courses and seminars. The Department of Geosciences collaborates with GDFL.
