Meteorology, in very simplistic terms, is the science of weather forecasting. This is done by describing, quantifying, and analyzing the variables that compose Earth’s atmosphere: temperature, air pressure, water vapor, and mass flow. This all means that students of this subject will have a strong emphasis on physics, chemistry, and, computer science – all in order to capture and comprehend the huge amount of data this science requires. Career paths range from work with government agencies to private industry, with possible applications to energy production, transport, agriculture, and construction.
