About Us

At Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER), we are dedicated to advancing the scientific understanding of the atmosphere, ocean, and space environment, and translating this into actionable information for our customers. 

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.

Our scientists and engineers – more than 65 of whom hold PhDs or other advanced degrees – are globally recognized for being at the forefront of their respective fields. Areas of expertise span climate change, defense, hydrology, meteorology, oceanography, space, remote sensing, and atmospheric and environmental science.  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 now a business unit within Verisk Analytics.
