Meteorology, or atmospheric science, is the study of the atmosphere and its interaction with Earth’s surface, oceans, and biological systems. Meteorologists seek to describe, understand, and predict weather phenomena that occur on spatial scales ranging from millimeters to thousands of kilometers, and on time scales from microseconds to thousands of years or longer. These phenomena range from localized thunderstorms and tornadoes, to regional frontal systems and hurricanes, to global climate change. Major scientific areas of research in meteorology today include weather, climate, and the interactions between them. This includes the study and prediction of severe and hazardous weather events that strongly affect life and property. These events include, but are not limited to, lightning, tornadoes, floods, hail, blizzards, dense fog and hurricanes. Research activities regarding climate and weather-climate interactions include the study of past climates, regional climate, surface and boundary layer processes, climate change and seasonal forecasting. The School of Meteorology is actively engaged in research on all the above-mentioned topics.
