Atmospheric Chemistry

Atmospheric Chemistry
Atmospheric chemistry is a branch of atmospheric science in which the chemistry of the Earth's atmosphere and that of other planets is studied. It is a multidisciplinary field of research and draws on environmental chemistry, physics, meteorology, computer modeling, oceanography, geology and... More »

Climatology

Climatology
Climatology is the study of climate, scientifically defined as weather conditions averaged over a period of time, and is a branch of the atmospheric sciences. Basic knowledge of climate can be used within shorter term weather forecasting using analog techniques such as teleconnections and climate... More »

Climate Change

Climate Change
Climate change means the difference in the Earth's global climate or in regional climates over time. (Source:... More »

Paleoclimatology

Paleoclimatology
Paleoclimatology is the study of changes in climate taken on the scale of the entire history of Earth. (Source:... More »

Meteorology

Meteorology
Meteorology is the science that focuses on the earth's atmosphere. People who study meteorology are called meteorologists. Meteorologists record air pressure, wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, weather patterns, and other information! Meteorologists use this data to understand weather... More »

Weather

Weather
Weather is what happens in the sky. Weather includes wind, lightning, storms, hurricanes, tornados, rain, hail, snow, and lots more. Energy from the sun affects the weather. Climate tells us what kinds of weather usually happen in an area at different times of the year. (Source:... More »

Atmospheric Sciences

Atmospheric Sciences
Atmospheric sciences is an umbrella term for the study of the atmosphere, its processes, the effects other systems have on the atmosphere, and the effects of the atmosphere on these other systems. (Source:... More »
