[Meteorology][1] is the science of the atmosphere. Meteorologists work in weather forecasting, atmospheric research, teaching and other kinds of applied meteorology such as air pollution control. As a meteorologist one needs to have good understanding of maths and physics as well as meteorology. S/he needs to precise and methodical when recording and analyzing data. S/he must be able to present findings and predictions clearly both verbally and in writing. S/he needs to have an enquiring mind, good analytic skills, the ability to deal with large amount of information, a logical approach to pro

Instrumented AircraftHigh-performance airplanes equipped with measuring and sampling instruments are used to observe many kinds of weather and other atmospheric phenomena. "Hurricane hunter" aircraft fly into the hearts of these huge, intense weather systems. Armored research aircraft penetrate hailstorms to study the processes that produce hailstones. High-performance jets fly into plumes of smoke and ash over erupting volcanoes to sample particles that are ejected into the atmosphere, where they can affect weather and climate.RadarRadar-an acronym for "radio detection and rang

Meteorology is the study of the atmosphere. Since weather is everywhere, meteorologists can be found all over the world doing many different jobs.An operational forecaster analyzes weather conditions and issues forecasts or alerts the public of severe weather for their area.A research meteorologist studies more specific areas of weather like severe weather or climate change. They can also develop tools like radar or weather models to help other meteorologists in their jobs.A meteorologist in the military makes weather observations and forecasts for missions a
