Summary

Meteorology is the science of the atmosphere and its phenomena. There are many kinds of meteorologists, including those who create forecasts that keep airplanes safe when flying; those who conduct research on global warming, acid rain, and pollution; and those who testify in legal proceedings about weather conditions at the time of a crime or car accident. Others work as storm spotters, college professors, and consultants to politicians and private organizations. This field is projected to grow through 2018, predicting a sunny future for those interested in a career in meteorology.
