I have a meteorology question?
Q: Can you be a meteorologist without having to broadcast on TV? A: Yes Q: is there a type of meteorologist that researches on tornadoes and waterspouts and hurricanes? A: Yes Q: Can you be a meteorologist and be a teacher at the same time teaching meteorology? A: Yes Q: Is [sic] there different types of meteorologists? A:Yes •Boundary layer meteorology: The study of processes in the atmospheric layer directly above Earth's surface, known as the atmospheric boundary layer. •Mesoscale meteorology: The study of atmospheric phenomena within a vertical scale that starts at the Earth's surface and includes the atmospheric boundary layer, the troposphere, the tropopause, and the lower section of the stratosphere. The majority of Earth's observed weather is in the troposphere. •Physical meteorology: The study of physical aspects of the atmosphere such as rain, thunderstorms, pressure fronts, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc. •Synoptic meteorology: The analysis and forecast of large-scale weather systems. •Dynamic meteorology: Focuses on the theoretical laws of physics pertaining to the atmosphere. Meteorology also has many specialized sub-disciplines such as: •Weather forecasting: The application of science and technology to predict the state of the atmosphere for a given location at a given time. •Aviation meteorology: The study of the effects of weather conditions on the control of air traffic. •Agricultural meteorology: The study of the effects of weather and climate conditions on everything related to agriculture. •Hydrometeorology: A combination of hydrology and meteorology which focuses on things such as the hydrologic cycle and the water budget as well as forecasts and statistics of heavy rainfall and heavy snow storms. •Atmospheric chemistry: A branch of atmospheric science in which the chemistry of the Earth's atmosphere and that of other planets is studied. •Air pollution dispersion modeling: The mathematical simulation of how air pollutants disperse in the ambient atmosphere. It is performed with computer programs, called dispersion models, that solve the mathematical equations and algorithms which simulate the pollutant dispersion. •Nuclear meteorology: Studies of the distribution of radioactive substances in the atmosphere. •Maritime meteorology: Deals with wind and wave forecasts for ships operating at sea.
A meteorologist, by definition, is someone who studies the weather. That can be done in a great number of capacities. Ben Franklin was a meteorologist, but he never broadcasted a thing. At most, he might've put a forecast in his newspaper, based largely on speculation. He was one of the first storm chasers, but did so to study lightning, not wind events. He had an honorary doctorate, but as far as I know he never gave a lecture on meteorology in any college. Despite all these differences from what we consider modern meteorological practices, Franklin was absolutely a meteorologist.
Certainly. Where do you think those TV reporters get the information they pass along to you?
More than just a reporter?
Yes to all. Most TV meteorologists have a one year degree, Real ones (Like my daughter) have four year degrees.
The answer to most pf those questions are Yes
Of course you can. Far from every meteorologist end up on TV.
