TAMSCAMS - Texas A&M Student Chapter of the American Meteorological Society

The Texas A&M Student Chapter of the American Meteorological Society and National Weather Association, is a student organization bringing together anyone interested in meteorology and the atmospheric sciences.

The objectives of TAMSCAMS are to provide educational and social meetings for all students of Texas A&M University who are interested in meteorology in any of its phases or applications, to provide a forum for discussions of meteorology or other related topics of general interest, and to develop and disseminate knowledge of the atmospheric and related oceanic and hydrologic sciences and the advancement of their applications at the college level. The organization strives to promote the ideals of Texas A&M University and acquaint the student body with the science and applications of meteorology.

TAMSCAMS meetings feature guest speakers from the meteorology and atmospheric sciences fields, weather discussions, as well as announcements about upcoming events or job opportunities. Other activities throughout the school year include field trips to television stations and weather facilities, social events, and community service projects such as the Big Event and Aggie Replant. We also provide students the opportunity to join Texas Aggie Storm Chasers (TASC) or weather radio broadcasting if interested.

Membership is open to any student of Texas A&M with an interest in meteorology.

Undergraduate Research

Faculty in the Atmospheric Sciences regularly offer undergraduate student research topics, pairing undergraduate students with graduate students or faculty in existing or new research efforts that can be accomplished within 1-2 semesters. Top undergraduate student research results are rewarded through the University Undergraduate Research Scholars program,  and have been published as undergraduate research theses, as well as in the peer-reviewed literature. Past URS faculty mentors include Drs. Nielsen-Gammon and Schade.
