Infrastructure

 

The infrastructure available to graduate students is among the best in the country. In the atmospheric sciences department, full-time research students have their own office (Figure 1) with computers connected to the Internet, and access to various databases (journals, meteorological observations, time series from experimental platforms, among others).

The Meteorology Graduate Program also has three offices available for research development and use in practice sessions, each accommodating 20 computers with Internet access, scanners and laser and inkjet printers (Figure 2).
