    •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.

  • Is it true that there is less humid in the air in the winter compared to other three seassons, why?

    Best answer: Yes,because its colder.Humid normally means the air feels thick and heavy with
    moisture.Winter is colder,so this moisture freezes and falls to the ground.

  • Can lightning and thundering really cause temperature like 30000 C?

    Best answer: The energy in a lightening bolt can cause some extreme temperatures, yes. The thunder part is a consequence of that energy release, not the cause. Temperature increase is just what happens to matter when you add energy, and the voltage of a lightening bolt is very high and leads to the release of an extremely... show more
    Best answer: The energy in a lightening bolt can cause some extreme temperatures, yes. The thunder part is a consequence of that energy release, not the cause. Temperature increase is just what happens to matter when you add energy, and the voltage of a lightening bolt is very high and leads to the release of an extremely large amount of energy. A lot of that energy comes out as light and sound, but there is also heat.

    Best answer: Here's how storms develop over large land masses.

    Short answer:
    It's not b/c there's massive amounts of moisture in the air.
    And it's also not b/c of any of the world-class hand-waving on display in the other answers.

    Longer answer:
    Cyclogenesis is the name meteorologist give to a developing storm.
    Three main ingredients are need for cyclogenesis to occur:
    - Temperature contrast
    - Lifting mechanism
    - Moisture

    Storms begin to form in the mid-to-upper levels of the troposphere where the air flows in undulating waves ... then work their way down to the surface.

    - The RED (BLUE) stripe in the upper panel is a region of ASCENDING (DESCENDING) air.
    - Beneath RED (BLUE) stripe at the surface is an area where air is being pulled toward (away from) a central point which creates LOW (HIGH) pressure.

    - As the air is drawn toward a central point ... the rotation of the earth causes the wind to turn to the right and rotate counter-clockwise in the Northern hemisphere. Moisture in the rising air around the LOW cools ... condenses into clouds ... and creates precipitation.

    The general storm movement is easterly pushed along by westerly winds in the mid- and upper levels.

  • Why are weather reporters so incompetent?

    They said rain, not snow. We’re getting snow. I think they’re network should suspend them when they mess up like this and fire them if it keeps happening!!

  • Does windchill change the actual temperature?

    Like, say the temp outside registers at 36F but the wind is blowing at 6mph. Does that drop the actual temp to 30F? Not just makes it feel like it's 30F? I'm trying to figure out if the foot of snow that dropped last night an today will be gone by Tuesday if the high temp will be 37F with wind at 7mph.

  • If March 21st the first day of spring then why was it still snowing in March 21st 2018. Clearly this means spring does not begin in March.?

    Best answer: Sometimes there is snow even in April so even in April the spring doesn't begin yet if you think about this in the way you just did.
