Meteorology

Title

Meteorologists study the Earth's atmosphere and its interaction with Earth itself. They seek to understand and predict atmospheric behaviour.

Most meteorologists work for the Met Office, whose main task is to produce accurate and reliable weather forecasts for a number of clients. These forecasts use information taken from sophisticated equipment like satellites, weather stations and aircraft, including barometric pressure, wind speed and direction.

Meteorologists may also enter research in areas like climactic change.
