“Putting Science into Service”

Every day, operational meteorologists put their knowledge and understanding of the science of weather, climate, and related fields to work, in service to a wide variety of partners and users. They work together in a circular process chain – with researchers providing relevant study and modeling results to those creating warnings and forecasts and to those charged with clearly conveying this information to the public and other users, in order to help them make crucial weather- and climate-dependent decisions. The needs of these users then help inform the research, and the process begins anew. Within this process, achieved through strong partnerships among all entities within the weather enterprise, operational meteorologists apply the science to solve weather- and climate-related problems, benefit society, and fulfill countless weather and climate needs.
