Climatology is a branch of atmospheric science that focuses on the study of climate over a period of time. Climatologists are trained professionals that study long-term climate trends and aim to predict changes and how the changes will affect the environment.


Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

Want to know how I built this life with no formal education?

What does a climatologist do?

Climatologists study climate patterns of many periods of time such as months, years, and centuries. They obtain, evaluate, and interpret past records of climate in certain regions or areas. They often study temperature, sunshine, rain, and wind. Many analyze patterns in climate over past years to predict the weather of a particular season. Climatologists also study the temperatures and current changes of oceans. They use their information to construct climate models using specialized computer software. The models are often used to illustrate historical events that involve the climate of the earth. Climatologists also use their models to forecast future events based on past information. They sometimes manipulate the models to demonstrate how many different changes can impact future climate. The studies of climatologists are often used to design buildings and plan heating and cooling systems. Climatologists often work for government organizations, nonprofit agencies, professional laboratories, and professional weather service organizations.

What kind of training does a climatologist need?

Climatologists typically need at least a bachelor degree in climatology or other related field. Some employers prefer applicants with a master or doctorate degree and extensive experience. Prospective climatologists often complete courses in climatology, atmospheric science, meteorology, physics, mathematics, astronomy, and oceanography. Many aspiring climatologists complete internships while pursuing their education to gain practical experience in the field. Most employers provide some on the job training to enable new climatologists to learn the policies and procedures. Climatologists must complete continuing education throughout their careers to keep their skills current and stay up to date with advancements in the field.

What are the prospects for a career as a climatologist?

Employment of climatologists is expected to grow faster than average for all professions, increasing 15% from 2008 to 2018 (1). The ever-changing climate and increased demand for research on weather and climate patterns will drive job growth.

Job prospects should be good with strong competition. Climatologists with advanced training and extensive experience will have the best job opportunities.

How much do climatologists make?

As of April 2010, the average annual salary for climatologists is $56,000; average annual climatologist salaries vary greatly on location, employer, education, experience, and benefits (2).

A career as a climatologist is a great choice for individuals with a strong interest in climatology. Climatologists must have a solid understanding of the concepts and practices of studying a variety of climate patterns. Patience, perseverance, detail orientation, and critical thinking are necessary characteristics. Climatologists must have good communication and interpersonal skills and ability to present their research findings to a variety of people. They must be able to work independently as well as part of a team.
