While obtaining his Ph.D., Dr. Larry Vardiman served as a research assistant at Colorado State University's Department of Atmospheric Science (1970-74) and as a consulting meteorologist at Western Scientific Services (1973-74). After receiving his degree in Atmospheric Science, he worked as site director for a cloud seeding research program for the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Reclamation in Denver, Colorado (1974-82). He also served as a consultant to the Colorado Governor's Advisory Panel on Weather Modification. Dr. Vardiman was an officer in the United States Air Force with the Air Weather Service in the Aerospace Modification Division at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois.

Dr. Vardiman was a major participant and director of ICR's Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth (RATE) research project. He has authored many technical papers and books. Much of his scientific contributions have been in the areas of ice crystal growth and evolution, rain from “the windows of heaven” (Genesis 7:11), the age of the earth's atmosphere, the Ice Age and the Genesis Flood, and catastrophic hurricane formation. His most recent research focused on the Ice Age in Yosemite and Yellowstone National Parks, and giant typhoons in the Middle East.
