Meteorologists

Although most people think of weather forecasting when they think of meteorology, meteorologists do many other kinds of work also. They research subjects ranging from radioactive fallout to the dynamics of hurricanes. They study the ozone levels in the stratosphere. Some teach in colleges and universities. A few meteorologists create weather forecasts and report on weather events (such as hurricanes, blizzards, and tornadoes) for radio and television news broadcasts. Television and radio networks usually hire their own staff of meteorologists.
