Welcome to the official UWM Atmospheric Sciences Club website!  We hope this website serves as a useful resource for club members and visitors.  Currently our club has 15-25 active members who share an enthusiasm for the atmospheric sciences and participate in club activities.  The purpose of the club is to provide a way to meet others who share a passion for meteorology, as well as enhancing the educational experience of our members.  Below is a list of some "Quick Facts" about the club.  If you would like more detailed information, please click on the link to the right labeled "General Information."  Thanks for visiting our site and we would love for you to become our next member!
