Atmospheric Sciences

Prof. David Randall from Colorado State University wrote a series of QuickStudies essays to provide brief, readable, and accessible summaries of selected background topics in Atmospheric Sciences.

Prof. Kerry Emanuel from Massachusetts Institute of Technology wrote a commentary, highlighting the importance of “theory” and advocating that “we must resist the wholesale migration of atmospheric, oceanic, and climate science away from a traditional curiosity‐driven scientific endeavor to the more strictly applied venture of predicting weather and climate.”

Academic Job Hunt

Prof. A.W. Peet from University of Toronto wrote a document in 2002 about how to find a job in the academy. Many of his advice, I believe, still applies for today’s academic job market.
