Description


Meteorology is the scientific study of atmospheric phenomena, occurring in the lower stratosphere and troposphere. It also encompasses the study of weather. An important area of meteorological studies is the observation, understanding and forecasting of weather. Some of the focus areas of meteorology are climate modeling, climate change, remote sensing and air quality. Atmospheric parameters are measured using radar, weather balloons, satellites and buoys. They are relayed to weather centers to predict the future state of the atmosphere. Meteorological studies operate on four meteorological scales- microscale, mesoscale, global and synoptic scales. This book unravels the recent studies in the field of meteorology. Also included in this book is a detailed explanation of the various weather, climate and environment studies that are under the purview of meteorology. The readers would also gain knowledge that would broaden their perspective about this field.
