About Meteorology on Brainscape

What Is Meteorology?

Meteorology is the branch of science covering weather forecasting and the climatic condition of the earth's atmosphere. In understanding the atmosphere's structure, the study of meteorology extends to physical and chemical laws that help people keep records after observing weather conditions.

Meteorology is not the same as climatology; the latter deals with studying climates over long periods while the former is concerned with the atmospheric condition of a location. Advanced research of these records has helped agriculture, defense systems, satellite, and space technology. More so, we can get alerts on severe weather conditions like hurricanes and tornadoes.

Careers in Meteorology

Meteorologists can predict weather conditions and their impact on the earth and environmental processes. After studying meteorology in a postgraduate or undergraduate program, they're ready to grow professionally. There are a number of subdivisions under Meteorology in which graduates can build hands-on experience and rewarding careers:

Microscale meteorology

Mesoscale meteorology

Weather modification

Radar metrology

Aviation meteorology, and others.

There’s a setting that's ideal for every type of meteorologist -- in the weather service department, airports, agricultural research offices, universities or as a TV broadcast meteorologist. Apart from making weather predictions, some meteorologists work in data collection and research.

Technological innovations for the control of global warming have triggered the teaching related to the ozone layer's changes at advanced levels. Thus, more meteorologists are finding a career path by teaching in higher institutions.

Do you have a curious mind that desires to unravel meteorology? If so, then The American Meteorological Society is developing young talents. You can also check out this fun quick video from Ted-Ed about the history of the barometer.

Learning Meteorology  

Meteorology students enjoy conducting atmospheric experiments and learning how to record and analyze data while honing their critical thinking skills. But learning meteorology is definitely no walk in the park. Students need to have knowledge not only of higher math but also of advanced chemistry and physics.

Brainscape is an ideal complimentary tool for meteorology students to drill down into the core theoretical concepts and scientific knowledge needed to excel in professional practice.  

Meteorology in Brainscape

There are thousands of flashcards prepared by top meteorology students available to explore in Brainscape. Take a little time to browse through the flashcards and you’ll see everything from cards on Turbulence to Remote Sensing.

If studying Meteorology is your college dream and you need to ace your AP exams, then check out the best AP study guides on the planet.

You can also author your own flashcards for a personalized learning resource and it’s good to know that the authoring process also deepens the memory.  

Learn faster with Brainscape

Brainscape’s unique learning system known as Confidence-Based Repetition (CBR) is transforming the way people learn. By understanding the brain and how we learn in more depth, CBR has been scientifically proven to help students learn twice as fast and remember longer.

The hybrid learning tool is based on the cognitive science principles of Spaced Repetition, Active Recall, and Metacognition -- three scientifically proven effective learning methods.

The first of these, spaced repetition dates back to the 1930s. The flashcard format delivery of Brainscape perfectly mimics the proven system of digesting small pieces of information at spaced intervals.

The second method employed is active recall. This learning method is used when Brainscape learners retrieve an answer. In doing so, your neurons get a workout and consequently the recall pathway is stronger next time the information is needed.

Other computer-aided learning tools also use these methods, but Brainscape is different in its use of metacognition to fuel the algorithm. The metacognitive responses make Brainscape the most powerful learning engine available today.

In practice, you might be learning about Air Masses and you needed to recall the Air Mass Source latitudes. You thought you had it down this time and you could remember the north and south degree latitudes for all four latitudes. You rate your understanding as a “5” on the Brainscape CBR scale. The algorithm won’t waste your time with that flashcard anymore, however, and you’ll see that other flashcard about Radiation Fog soon that you rated as a “1”. The way the deck is shuffled allows learners to never waste a second and achieve outstanding results.

How to get started

Now that you know how Brainscape can boost your learning, what’s the best way to try it out?

Essentially, there are two ways to use Brainscape. At Brainscape we love learning but we also know it’s individual. It’s easy to become attached to your own coursework, written just as you understand it with your own idiosyncrasies. The good news is that it’s easy to revamp your coursework with Brainscape technology by just clicking on “make flashcards” at the top of the page.  

However, the way many people choose to learn is to use the extensive selection of flashcards already prepared by top experts and students just like you. Choose a deck such as Hurricanes, Influences Upon Climate or Oscillations and start learning the smart way, today.

Brainscape is all about giving students the best educational tools available on the market to achieve their dreams. The Brainscape team wishes you all the best in your Meteorology studies and career.
