Parent Category: Atmospheric Sciences
Meteorology is the science which deals with the phenomena of the atmosphere, especially weather and weather conditions. It involves the study of the character of the atmosphere and the events and processes within it, together with the interaction between the atmosphere and the face of the earth. Weather, of course, is what occurs on the surface of the earth from day to day, whether that be rain, sunshine, heat or cold, or whatever the outside conditions are.
