What is a Meteorologist!

We work with weather and climate! Measuring it, forecasting it, studying it! This link to the Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics shows you what we do, how much we are paid, and job growth outlook. Did you know “Employment of atmospheric scientists, including meteorologists, is projected to grow 12 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations.“?
