A meteorologist in the military makes weather observations and forecasts for missions around the world.
I am a freshman here at Central Michigan University, in Mount Pleasant, MI. I have gone through one semester of basic meteorology learning the basic aspects of how the atmosphere functions. In my short time in this major, I have quickly learned that everything effects everything. What I mean about that is that a system or a potential wave in the Southern Hemisphere will effect something in the Northern Hemisphere with similar affects. With it being an El Nino year, I learned the basic functions on how each tropic is effected with the constant flow of moisture at the equator. This opportunity will allow me to gain knowledge about atmospheric science where I will learn and use from for future meteorological job related positions. I am fortunate
Wrongberight, Virginia is a rural farming community, and its residents depend on accurate weather reports. The locals believe, those profession meteorologists could not predict rain, even if raindrops were falling on their head. On Thursday the local weather guru of Wrongberight, Charlie Jones, age eleven forecast a ten-hour deluge would hit on Friday. It did. In fact it dumps eight addition inches of rain, to the already, saturated farmer’s fields and woodlands from the previous intermittent rainstorm that he also predicted. According to him, that storm on Friday was just a prelude to another storm that will strike Wrongberight, sometime early Saturday night. He also said, that this kind of storm would produce, at least one or two unique
1. It is hard to imagine a world without weather forecasts as they have become so indispensable to so many facets of everyday life in the 21st Century.
Cumulonimbus clouds are mostly affiliated with thunderstorms, lightning, heavy rainfall, blizzard or hail. The forecast should reflect rain or chances of rain.
My father, Edward Wollbrinck, has always been into the news and weather for as long as I could remember. He likes storms. They fascinate him. Or should I just say storms fascinate my parents, brother, and me. I don’t know why we are interested in storms, but we just are. We also are interested in tornados, even though they are dangerous, it's just interesting to know how they form, what the they do, and figure out how the eye of the tornado is like.
I received my Bachelor of Science Degree from Portland State University where I majored in Social Science. In addition, I completed 60 credits towards my Master Degree from Glasgow Caledonian University.
According to the American Meteorological Society, a meteorologist is an individual with specialized education who uses scientific principles to explain, understand, observe or forecast the earth's atmospheric phenomena and/or how the atmosphere affects the earth and life on the planet. In basic terms, a meteorologist is someone who observes, reports, and forecasts weather conditions.
Every day people listen to meteorologists before making many decisions pertaining to their lives. In this case, Miss Minnie was no exception. Since she wanted to know if she would need protection from rain, she watched the local weatherman just a few hours before leaving. As a result, she chooses to leave without any. Therefore, she was devastated when she was sitting at the bus stop and it started to rain. Miss Minnie, like others, has watched weather reports become more advanced over the years and assumed that the radars would be able to indicate rain hourly. Therefore, when the weatherman said there was sunny skies with a slight chance of rain, she believed him and wore her best.
My ultimate goal in life is to become a meteorologist. Not the kind you see on tv or radio but what most would refer to as the “behind the scenes” meteorologist; with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). From there I have a few options, but the paths I want to pursue are with the NOAA’s National Weather Service (NWS) or the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). With the NWS I would produce forecast and issue watches, warnings, and advisories; fulfilling the agency's goals of protecting life and property. My second possibility would be as a NOAA meteorologist with in one of the FAA’s Air Route Traffic Control Centers, working with air traffic controllers and advising them on meteorological hazards that would affect aircraft
Every opportunity that I get to learn, explain and express this indescribable love for these weather phenomenon I seize it enthusiastically. I purely love the science of weather and discussing it with
Meteorologists are people who study the different things happening in the earth's atmosphere so that they can make predictions about the weather. They make use of advance equipment of all shapes and sizes to measure things like rainfall, air pressure, wind conditions and temperature. As weather is a complex thing, they would need to collect a lot of data to understand it properly. They carry out experiments before drawing conclusions about the weather. It must be exciting to have such a difficult but interesting
Growing up, I could always remember myself spending hours and hours just looking up at the sky and seeing the white clouds changing shapes as they drifted by. The mystery nature is overwhelmingly fascinating to a little child, nevertheless, it is violent and cruel at the same time. Being raised in the southeastern China, typhoons are a fact of life that I learn to endure. Seeing the complete mess after a storm, I invariably wanted to have the ability to predict and change the weather so that homes could be protected, and lives could be saved from the deadly disaster.
Introduction: Olafur Eliasson, an extraordinary artist of the 19th and 20th century, was born on February 5, 1967 in Copenhagen, Denmark. All throughout Eliasson’s childhood he was surrounded by beautiful, natural surroundings that caused him to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for environment itself and natural lights that create it. (1) From 1989 to 1995, Eliasson attended the Royal Academy of Arts in Copenhagen. Eliasson began studying traditional art, but ultimately grew famous for his installations. Around 1950, Eliasson began to participate in exhibitions world round: from museums such as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, to the Museum of Contemporary Arts in Los Angeles, to the London’s Tate Modern. (**) Furthermore, Eliasson has several different solo-exhibitions; like his exhibition in ZKM in Karlsruhe, Germany. Another one of his very noteworthy achievements was his participation in the 2003 Venice Biennale, representing Denmark. Eliasson is currently residing in Germany and furthering his career in art.

What is a meteorologist? Usually, people don’t know what it is because this job is uncommon. And some people are confused with a forecaster who comes out every day in a News program to let us know the weather in this week. But, it is different that informing and researching of the weather. Meteorology is a science especially called atmospheric science and part of a larger filed. Also, It includes a number of areas of specialization. Then Meteorologists can be classified 4 parts of what they study; Climatology, Dynamic Meteorology, Physical Meteorology, Industrial Meteorology. Climatology is that studying the history even that is a couple of hours ago and patterns of the weather to research and predict more detail patterns of future weather. Dynamic Meteorology is that studying the movement of weather systems and what and how controls them. Physical
