Meteorologists study the earth atmosphere and effect it has on the earth's surface. They monitor and interpret atmospheric conditions and use their observations to make short term weather forecasts. Certain meteorologists also analyse and measure global climate change over loner periods and assess its application for humans and environment.

They compile weather forecasts from measurements and observations of conditions like humidity, cloud levels , wind , temperature and pressure. Data is collected from a variety of sources.
