They will prepare weather forecasts for the public as well as specific users such as aviation, marine, defence and emergency services. They will issue warnings for cyclones, storms, gales, floods, frosts and fire danger and study climate and identify climatic change. They will work with physicists and engineers to develop observation equipment and distribute information on topics such as air pollution and also supervise and coordinate the work of other meteorologists, technical officers and meteorological observers and also carry out weather studies for particular clients.
