Advising Center for the major, is located in 1150 Plant and Environmental Sciences Building in Land, Air and Water Resources Teaching Center 530-752-1603 ATM Adviser Lacole Brooks; lawradvising@ucdavis.edu.
Note. Alternative options for students who are interested in atmospheric science are to minor in ATM or to major in ESM choosing climate change and air quality track. However, both the ATM minor and the ESM climate change and air quality track do not meet the Federal civil service requirements for meteorologists.

Minor Program Requirements:

Minor Program. The minor in Atmospheric Science provides a broad treatment of weather and climate, with the option to focus on such topics as climate change, meteorological instrumentation, and satellite remote sensing. Students undertaking the minor should have completed minimum preparatory course work in calculus and physics (Mathematics 16A-16B, Physics 5A or 7A). Some upper division courses in Atmospheric Science have the Mathematics 21 and 22 series and the Physics 9 series as prerequisites.
Atmospheric Science
Atmospheric Science 60, 110 8
Four courses selected with the approval of the minor program adviser from upper division Atmospheric Science courses (excluding 192 or 199) or Environmental Science and Management 131 12-16
