Course description

Meteorology is the science of weather and climate, but it encompasses much more. This geosciences discipline is deeply rooted in physics, exploring atmospheric processes through both experimental-empirical and theoretical methods. It connects to various fields, including chemistry, oceanography, hydrology, and geography. In studying meteorology, you delve into subjects like atmospheric dynamics, thermodynamics, and cloud physics. Programs often include courses in physics and mathematics, essential for understanding complex weather patterns. You also explore the chemistry of the atmosphere, the interaction between the ocean and the atmosphere, and the role of water in weather systems. Meteorology isn't just about predicting the weather. It's about understanding the intricate systems that govern our climate. This knowledge helps us prepare for natural disasters, manage water resources, and address climate change. By studying meteorology, you gain insights that are crucial for our planet's future.
