What Will You Learn?

Meteorology is the study of short-term weather conditions of all types - from the everyday to the extreme. It is used to examine atmospheric processes and other key components in order to explain and forecast weather. Take the Meteorology Diploma Course and learn more about this fascinating branch of atmospheric science.

Starting off with an introduction to the field, including the subfields of meteorology and the essential components of weather, you’ll learn about the Earth’s layers, the atmospheric processes that contribute to the development of different weather systems, and the global atmospheric circulation.

We’ll look at how meteorologists gather weather data and the mathematical models they use for weather forecasting. We’ll examine the main types of clouds and what they can tell us about the weather, delve into the jet streams and ocean currents and the impact they have on the weather, and look through the different scales of meteorology.

Through the course, you’ll learn about precipitation and extreme weather, such as blizzards, monsoons, thunderstorms, tropical cyclones, tornadoes, and waterspouts, and what causes them. You’ll also be introduced to some of the most important concepts in space weather and some of the ways in which it affects our weather on Earth.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Learn about the components of weather
  • Explore atmospheric processes and global atmospheric circulation
  • Understand how meteorologists gather weather data and the mathematical models used in weather forecasting
  • Discover the impact that jet streams and ocean currents have on the weather
  • Gain an understanding of what causes various extreme weather conditions
  • Learn about important concepts in space weather and how it affects Earth
