Category: Meteorology

Meteorology is the study of the Earth’s atmosphere and the processes that govern its behavior. It seeks to understand weather patterns, climate, and the interactions between the atmosphere and other components of the Earth system.

Meteorologists use a range of tools and techniques to study the atmosphere, including weather balloons, satellites, and computer models. They also draw upon other fields of science, such as physics and chemistry, to better understand atmospheric processes and their impacts on the Earth and its systems.

Meteorology has important practical applications, including in the forecasting of weather and natural disasters, the design of buildings and infrastructure to withstand severe weather, and the development of strategies to mitigate the impacts of climate change.
