Meteorology (from Greek: μετέωρον, met©Åron , "high in the sky"; and λόγος, l³gos , "knowledge") is the interdisciplinary scientific study of the atmosphere that focuses on weather processes and forecasting. Meteorological phenomena are observable weather events which illuminate and are explained by the science of meteorology. Those events are bound by the variables that exist in Earth 's atmosphere. They are temperature pressure water vapor , and the gradients and interactions of each variable, and how they change in time. The majority of Earth's observed weather is located in the troposphere Meteorology, climatology atmospheric physics , and atmospheric chemistry are sub-disciplines of the atmospheric sciences . Meteorology and hydrology compose the interdisciplinary field of hydrometeorology Interactions between Earth's atmosphere and the oceans are part of coupled ocean-atmosphere studies. Meteorology has application in many diverse fields such as the military, energy production, farming, shipping and construction.

The blanket of air around the earth is called the atmosphere All our weather happens in the bottom layer of the atmosphere called the troposphere , which is six to ten miles thick. Meteorology is the study of the changes in temperature, air pressure, moisture, and wind direction in the troposphere. The Sun Starts it All There is one basic reason we have weather, and that is the sun . Weather systems start because the sun's energy heats up some parts of Earth more than others. Most of the time the sun shines most directly on the middle of Earth, with less heating at the north and south poles. Earth is tilted on its axis at exactly the right angle to have seasons , with different parts of Earth being heated more or less during different times of the year. Land heats up faster than water, setting up temperature differences between oceans and continents. This unequal heating creates variations in temperature and air pressure, winds, and ocean currents. Air Masses and Fronts The winds move heat from the tropical regions toward the poles in a never-ending effort to reach a temperature balance. In the process, fronts set up between warm and cold air masses and a stream of fast-moving air high up in the sky called the "jet stream" forms. Disturbances develop along the fronts and in the jet stream that trigger centers of

Explains what a meteorologist does, why they do it, and the tools that help them do a better job.
The original booklet was produced under the direction of a committee chaired by Warren M. Washington that included Werner A. Baum, Todd Glickman, Ronald D. McPherson, and Pamela Stephens, with input from a large number of AMS members. Henry Lansford, a science writer and communication consultant based in Boulder, Colorado, wrote the booklet and supervised its design and production. It was designed and produced by Michael Shibao of the Graphic Services group at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, which is operated by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research under the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation. It was reproduced in electronic format for the World Wide Web by staff of the American Meteorological Society.

WHY METEOROLOGY? Thousands of career choices are available in our fast-changing society. Why would you choose atmospheric science or applied meteorology? You will find very specific answers in the following pages, but here is a quick look at some of the challenges of our changing atmosphere: Do you have a deep curiosity about the world around you? As a meteorologist, you can satisfy that curiosity by investigating the natural forces that shape our weather and climate. You can look for answers to important questions that our society is asking-how can we save lives, how can we protect our environment? You can use your knowledge to warn others when danger is approaching in the form of tornadoes and

The Science of Meteorology
The field of meteorology or atmospheric science is a relative newcomer as an academic discipline. Most programs in meteorology/atmospheric science were established during the 1950s and 1960s. During that period the discipline experienced rapid growth, which has continued into the present era. Many advances in meteorology/atmospheric science can be attributed to breakthroughs in related areas of mathematics, physics, engineering, and technology. Supercomputers, weather radars, meteorological satellites, and the latest in other remote-sensing technologies have been applied not only to scientific inquiry but also to weather forecasting.

Significant Points
  • About 37 percent of atmospheric scientists are employed by the Federal Government; most of these work in the National Weather Service. A bachelor’s degree in meteorology, or in a closely related field with courses in meteorology, is the minimum educational requirement; a master’s degree is necessary for some positions, and a Ph.D. degree is required for most basic research positions. Atmospheric scientists should have favorable job prospects, but opportunities as weather broadcasters are rare and highly competitive.
Nature of the Work About this section Back to Top meteorologists , study the atmosphere’s physical characteristics, motions, and processes, and the way in which these factors affect the rest of our environment. The best known application of this knowledge is forecasting the weather. In addition to predicting the weather, atmospheric scientists attempt to identify and interpret climate trends, understand past weather, and analyze today’s weather. Weather information and meteorological research are also applied in air-pollution control, agriculture, forestry, air and sea transportation, defense, and the study of possible trends in the Earth’s climate, such as global warming, droughts, and ozone depletion.

Plymouth State University Meteorology Program Cloud Boutique
The Plymouth State Meteorology Program has developed this server to provide explanations of and access to detailed pictures of some basic cloud forms. The cloud images are relatively large (640x480) in order to show detailed structure and features. All of these pictures were taken in the local area around Plymouth, New Hampshire and most from the weather observation deck on the roof of the Boyd Science Center on the Plymouth State campus. Clouds can move and change shape quickly as indicated in this 30 minute time-lapse mpeg video loop . The purpose of this "boutique" is to provide a general cloud reference and is not intended to provide an all-inclusive list. Images will be added to or changed as opportunities permit.
Cloud Classification
Clouds are generally classified based on characteristics, such as, altitude, appearance, or origin. Altitude distinctions apply to those clouds that fit in various layers of the atmosphere as follows:
  • high clouds - have bases above 18,000 feet
