Research focuses on hurricane dynamics, hurricane impacts, hurricane boundary layer turbulence structures, atmospheric convection, atmospheric boundary layer and clouds, and cloud-climate feedbacks.

Atmospheric science provides facilities to study boundary layer clouds, atmospheric convection, numerical modeling, impacts of sea level rise on coastal systems, hurricanes research, and global climate change.

Additional resources available at the Geographic Information Systems Center, International Hurricane Research Center and NOAA's National Hurricane Center, which is located on FIU's Modesto A. Maidique Campus.
