Meteorology is an important field of science that studies the atmosphere, weather processes, and other natural factors that influence our world. It helps people learn how to predict natural disasters and prevent detrimental effects on the environment. Meteorologists are the professionals who study meteorology.


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.

What does a meteorologist do?

Meteorologists (also called atmospheric scientists) study the physical characteristics, processes, and motions of the world’s atmosphere. They study the ways these factors affect the rest of the world’s environment. Meteorologists forecast the weather and strive to recognize and understand trends in climate. They also try to understand past weather patterns and they examine the weather of today. Meteorological research and information on the weather are useful in agriculture, control of air pollution, air and sea transportation, forestry, defense, and the study of likely trends in the climate of the Earth such as ozone depletion, droughts, and global warming.

There are different types of meteorologists such as operational, physical, synoptic, and environmental meteorologists, and Climatologists. Operational meteorologists forecast the weather and are the biggest group of specialists. Physical meteorologists work in research. Synoptic meteorologists use complicated mathematical models of atmospheric activity and computers to create new tools for forecasting the weather. Environmental meteorologists study environmental problems and often assess and report quality of air. Climatologists study the variations in climate that has occurred over time.

What kind of training does a meteorologist need?

Meteorologists typically need a bachelor degree in meteorology or atmospheric science or other closely related field with supporting credits in meteorology. For some higher-level positions a master degree is required and for most basic research positions, a doctorate degree is necessary. In some cases a combination of education and sufficient experience may be substituted for a degree. It is also important to have a strong computer science, physics, and mathematics background in addition to completing meteorology classes.

What are the prospects for a career in meteorology?

Employment for meteorologists is projected to increase approximately as fast as average for all professions, increasing 11% from 2006 10 2016 (1).

The demand of meteorologists will be driven by the need for analyzing and monitoring of air pollutants and efforts to improving worldwide weather observations. Job opportunities will be the best in private industries.

Job prospects are expected to be favorable especially as people retire or leave the field for other reasons.

How much do meteorologists make?

As on July 2009, the middle 50% of meteorologists earned annual salaries between $70,422 and $108,935. The highest 10% earned more than $127,493 (2).

A career as a meteorologist is an excellent choice for individuals who have a genuine interest in the atmosphere and weather patterns. Meteorologists must have great communication skills and be able to work in a variety of environments. They must have flexible schedules and be able to work long hours. Being able to work effectively independently as well as part of a team is also essential.
