Dynamic Meteorology is the study of atmospheric motions as solutions of the fundamental equations of hydrodynamics or other systems of equations appropriate to special situations, as in the statistical theory of turbulence.Dynamic meteorology generally focuses on the fluid dynamics of the atmosphere

 Career opportunities

A dynamic meteorologist's career is concerned with the movements of weather systems and what controls them. Duties may include:

  • Working with hydrodynamics (the forces of fluids in motion) and with thermodynamics (the forces of heat).
  • Studying jet stream winds or small-scale air currents that exchange heat and moisture in the lower atmosphere.
  • Developing large-scale numerical models that help forecasters predict winds, temperature, and rainfall.


 News in dynamic meteorology

T.N Krishnamurti, Ph.D., University of Chicago, on his visit to the Department of Meteorology last year, gave a talk on coupled ensemble  models.He also invited a third year student, Ms Phoebe Shikuku to visit their faculty.Numerical modelling and Numerical weather prediction are important applications of dynamic meteorology.
