Centre for Earth & Atmospheric Sciences established at Sathyabama Institute of Science and Technology in accordance with the goal of establishing centre of excellence in frontier areas of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. Atmospheric Science has emerged as an important branch of science in recent times because of its increasing recognition and the need for better forecasting of weather and climate to meet the exigencies of the threats due to natural calamities and manmade deterioration of the environment. The Centre has well equipped laboratories to give a wide exposure to the students for practical knowledge and hands on experience. The Centre for Earth and Atmospheric Sciences has a multidisciplinary team of highly qualified Scientists in the area of Meteorology, Earth Science, Remote Sensing and GIS, Simulation Modeling, Agriculture, Environmental studies and air-pollution studies
To lead in innovative research and educate the future leaders in earth and atmospheric sciences for the 21st century, within the context of a premier technological research university.
The mission of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences is to realize the vision through building pillars of excellence in the following three areas: • Breakthrough discoveries through research in earth and atmospheric sciences as well as in interdisciplinary research involving the earth system and the environment • Vibrant learning experiences and environments that prepare students to pioneer the advancement of knowledge in earth and atmospheric sciences and become the future leaders of academia, government and industry • Public engagement that applies our research to inform public policy, resource management, environmental sustainability, and economic development, both locally and internationally.
