What is Atmospheric Science?
The study of Atmospheric Science involves weather and climate and how those affect human activity and life on earth. In this sphere of study we work to understand the symbiotic dynamics between human activity and physical environmental processes. All human action, policy and technology center around the effect weather processes have on the world.
Hydrometeorological disasters have far-reaching implications for human flourishing and atmospheric science can lead the way in developing new and better modeling to determine the effect other systems have on the earth’s atmosphere, the effects these systems have on the atmosphere, and the effects of the atmosphere on these other systems.
Meteorology includes atmospheric chemistry and atmospheric physics with a major focus on weather forecasting. Climatology is the study of atmospheric changes (both long and short-term) that define average climates and their change over time, due to both natural and anthropogenic climate variability.
