About Us

At Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER), we help government agencies better anticipate and manage climate- and weather-related risks. 

We prepare agencies like NOAA, NASA and the Department of Defense, along with large insurance, investment and energy companies to anticipate, manage, react to and profit from weather and climate related risk. We serve our clients by providing state-of-the-art research, development and analysis delivered in reports, databases and software solutions.

AER's world-renowned scientists and engineers are helping government agencies to understand weather and climate risk, predict impacts, and take action.

Our scientists – more than 85 of whom hold PhDs or other advanced degrees – are globally recognized for being at the forefront of their scientific fields. Areas of expertise span climate change, defense, hydrology, meteorology, oceanography, space, remote sensing, and atmospheric and environmental science. 

At AER we're dedicated to the advancement of scientific understanding of the atmospheric, climate and weather, ocean, and planetary sciences.  Through externally funded research conducted by our in-house scientific staff, and often in collaboration with world-renowned scientists at academic and other research institutions, we have developed analytical tools to help measure and observe the properties of the environment and to translate these measurements into useful information to take action. We have clients in the private and public sectors around the world. 

AER is a unit of the Verisk Climate division within Verisk Analytics.
