The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it. ~ Neil deGrasse Tyson Science if the key to our future, and if you don't believe in science, then you're holding everyone back. ~ Bill Nye

Military meteorology is meteorology applied to military purposes, by armed forces or other agencies. It is one of the most common fields of employment for meteorologists. World War II brought great advances in meteorology as large-scale military land, sea, and air campaigns were highly dependent on weather, particularly forecasts provided by the Royal Navy, Met Office and USAAF for the Normandy landing and strategic bombing. University meteorology departments grew rapidly as the military services sent cadets to be trained as weather officers. Wartime technological developments such as radar also proved to be valuable meteorological observing systems. More recently, the use of satellites in space has contributed extensively to military meteorology. Military meteorologists currently operate with a wide variety of military units, from aircraft carriers to special forces.
