Atmospheric Science  

Atmospheric Science is a study of science related to atmosphere. Atmospheric science includes the study of planetary science and the study of the atmospheres of the planets of the solar system. Professionals in this field are known as Atmospheric scientists, who are involved in the study of weather, climate, other aspects of the atmosphere, developing reports and forecasts from their analysis of weather and climate data. Atmospheric scientists are commonly called as meteorologists; Meteorologists study the atmosphere's physical characteristics, motions, processes, and the way in which these factors affect the rest of our environment.

Atmospheric scientists identify and interpret climate trends, understand past weather and analyze today's weather. Their data come from weather satellites, radars, sensors and stations in many parts of the world. They give weather information for both economic and safety reasons. Instruments used in atmospheric sciences include satellites, radiosondes, weather balloons and lasers.

Atmospheric Science branches are

1. Atmospheric chemistry (is a branch of atmospheric science in which the chemistry of the     Earth's atmosphere and that of other planets is studied).

2. Atmospheric dynamics (study of observations and theory dealing with all motion systems     of meteorological importance).

3. Atmospheric physics (application of physics to the study of the atmosphere).

4. Climatology (study the frequency and trends of the systems).

5. Atmospheres on other planets.



Graduates of Atmospheric science are employed in government and private sectors, weather stations, laboratories ,scientific, technical services firms, private weather consulting services such as radio and television broadcasting, air carriers. They can start their career as teacher in colleges and universities. Graduates are involved in Measuring temperature, air pressure and other properties of the atmosphere, Develop and use computer models that analyze data about the atmosphere ,Produce weather maps and graphics, Report current weather conditions. Graduates work with scientists and professionals in other fields to help solve problems in areas such as commerce, energy, transportation, agriculture and the environment.
