UNIT 1

FUNDAMENTALS OF METEOROLOGY

FOREWORD 

Meteorology is the study of atmospheric phenomena. This study consists of physics, chemistry, and dynamics of the atmosphere. It also includes many of the direct effects the atmosphere has upon Earth’s surface, the oceans, and life in general. The goals often ascribed to meteorology are the complete understanding and accurate prediction of atmospheric phenomena.

Meteorology may be subdivided into a large number of specialized sciences. These specialized sciences will be covered in depth in Unit 6. The treatment of meteorology in this manual progresses from the overall fundamentals of meteorology to a thorough description of atmospheric physics and circulation, air masses, fronts, and meteorological elements. This information supplies the necessary background for you to understand chart analysis, tropical analysis, satellite analysis, and chart interpretation. With this knowledge you can become a confident, well-informed weather analyst, interpreter, and briefer.

This first unit covers the following lessons: Lesson 1, Systems of Measurement; Lesson 2, Earth-Sun Relationship; Lesson 3, Pressure; Lesson 4, Temperature; and Lesson 5, Moisture.
