JOB DESCRIPTION: Meteorologists study and predict the weather. To do this they collect data about the atmosphere from weather stations and satellites. They use this data to make short-term weather predictions (e.g. it will rain tomorrow), and sometimes long-term climate predictions (e.g. the sea level will rise over the next 50 years). and our lives.
