The program goal is to provide students with advanced techniques which will enable them to address environmental and agricultural problems facing the global community. The basic components of this program are derived from expertise in agronomy, botany, statistics and meteorology at Iowa State University. The Agricultural Meteorology program benefits from outstanding research facilities. These include high-performance computational and graphical workstations, as well as a range of equipment for conducting field experiments. Students often work cooperatively with other ISU departments as well as affiliated institutions such as the National Soil Tilth Laboratory. Research problems that students undertake depend on their personal interests and on the objectives of the research project with which they are working. Research is designed to provide new information that will merit publication in refereed journals. All students, regardless of their source of financial support, are expected to participate in research projects directed by their major professor. Graduates have a broad knowledge base germane to their area of study. They are trained to integrate and apply knowledge to different situations. Students develop skills in scientific reasoning, organization, and logical presentation of ideas. An M.S. non-thesis option is available for students desiring a general degree program with additional coursework and a written creative component substituting for thesis research.
