Meteorologists find jobs mainly in government sector. However some private companies also recruit atmospheric scientists for environmental pollution control. A country’s Military operations such as troop movements, airplane flights, missile launches, and ship movements rely on accurate weather information. Hence, here the role of a meteorologist becomes crucial.
A meteorology degree or a degree in related marine science qualifies an individual to perform many weather-related jobs. There are good opportunities for overseas assignment to military bases and outposts throughout the world.
Space application centers also recruit meteorologists as the launching of satellite also depends on weather conditions. The Indian meteorological department has its branches all over India, hence meteorologists are absorbed there.
Here is a list of few institutes/organizations in India where meteorologists can find jobs –
- Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology
- India Meteorology Department
- Indian Air Force
- Space Application Center
- National Remote Sensing Agency
- Defense Research and Development Organization
- Indian Space Research Organization
