The University of Maryland Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Science, part of the Earth Sciences Program that includes the collocated Earth System Sciences Interdisciplinary Center (ESSIC), offers graduate degrees in atmospheric and oceanic sciences, and climate and earth sciences. The curriculum allows each student a choice of one of three areas of concentration:

The Department is particularly strong in atmosphereic chemistry and air pollution, mesoscale to global numerical weather prediction, data assimilation, earth sciences and climate, physical oceanography, remote sensing, and dynamics with predictability. These strengths are reinforced by strong collaborations leading to joint research topics with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, the Maryland Departments of the Environment and of National Resources, the National Centers for Environmental Prediction of the National Weather Service, and the NOAA Satellite and Air Research Laboratories, all of which are located near the campus. Interdisciplinary programs with the Departments of Geology, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Computer Sciences, Geography, the Marine-Estuarine Environmental Science, and Hydrology (within the School of Engineering) are also encouraged.
