Meteorology is the science of the atmosphere. The word meteorology comes from the Greek meteoros, which means lofty or elevated and logos, meaning discourse or description. The field of meteorology includes both weather and climate and is concerned with the physical, dynamical (a force producing change or motion), and chemical state of the Earth's atmosphere and interactions between the atmosphere and the Earth's surface. Humans' earliest observations of climate and weather date to hunters, gatherers, and farmers, who studied signs of changing weather in the sky. Today, scientists who study weather are called meteorologists.
Meteorologists are scientists who apply their understanding of the physics and properties of the atmosphere in order to understand weather and climate. The best-known meteorology role is predicting the daily weather, although the skills of meteorologists equip them for a range of other weather and climate related tasks. For example, they may be involved in interpreting and understanding satellite data of atmospheric phenomena, or in studying climatic trends over time in order to predict general changes in weather systems.
