What exactly is a meteorologist? Go to All About Careers in Meteorology and A Career Guide for Atmospheric Sciences and read the sections “Introduction” and “Getting an Education.” You can also take a look at AMS’s Career Guides & Tools.
After reading these, write responses to these questions
- Did you know there were so many types of meteorologists and that they do so many different types of work?
- What sort of person decides to become a meteorologist? Would you ever consider it? Why or why not?
- Are you surprised by the education and training that are required for such a career? If your niece said she was interested in become a meteorologist, what advice would you give her to help fulfill this goal? Please be as specific as possible.
Your assignment should be about 1-2 pages in length, double-spaced, with 1-inch margins and typed in 12-point Times New Roman. Each essay will be checked by Turnitin, generating an originality report, which will be available for you to see. I strongly suggest that you rewrite any submission that has a similarity score greater than 15. Even if you quote and attribute quotes properly, a score that high or higher means you are not putting enough of your thoughts into the assignment. Any sources used in the assignment must be cited and attributed correctly. Note that failure to do so constitutes plagiarism. All instances of plagiarism will result in a grade of zero for the assignment. If you use sources for your essays, online sources are permitted, but encyclopedias, online, such as Wikipedia or Britannica Online and print, are not permitted. Please use APA style for your citations and include valid URLs for any online sources.
