Introduction

BSc (Meteorology)

Meteorology is the study of atmospheric phenomena. This not only includes the physics, chemistry and dynamics of the atmosphere but is extended to include many of the direct effects of the atmosphere upon the earth’s surface, the oceans and life in general. Meteorologists aim to achieve complete understanding, accurate prediction and artificial control of atmospheric phenomena. Weather and climate are critical in people’s lives as they can affect many of our daily activities, such as agriculture, sports, travel and tourism. In the long term, they may even determine whether humankind survives or not. There is increasing concern that human activities may irreversibly change the earth’s weather and climate. Serious concerns are also expressed regarding the effects of air pollution. Meteorologists and atmospheric scientists are interested in understanding how the physics and dynamics of the atmosphere work.
