Meteorologists work in weather forecasting, atmospheric research, teaching and other kinds of applied meteorology such as air pollution control. The main and and responsibilities of meteorologists are :-

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. These include ground based observation stations, ships , aircraft, satellites and radar stations which may be used to measure rainfall
The data collected thus analyzed by them using computers.
They advise and provide information to the public related to industry and agriculture. Commercial aviation and shipping, power generation companies and air, sea and mountain rescue services all rely on fast, accurate forecasts. The meteorologist also study the world's climate change and global weather systems. They measure changes annually, compare these to past yearly records .
Meteorologists may apply their knowledge to solve practical problems in society and industry. e.g. they suggest the best place to put an oil rig based on their knowledge of gales, wave heights and storm tides or assist local councils to prevent flood damage.
