Climatologist

Description

These scientists study the earth’s climate conditions to predict future trends. Climatologists take samples from the air, soil, water and other sources, and conduct tests to analyse patterns in weather and how nature responds to them. Based on this research, they make forecasts as to how these patterns may impact certain parts of the environment, like plants and crops.
