Climatology program objective is to help students obtain a broad overview of the physical geography of the Earth and an understanding the behavior of the atmosphere and the processes involved to produce world wide weather and climate as well as to process the causes of world climatic change. Climatologists also falls under the title of atmospheric scientists. Climatology is a branch in atmosphere sciences; therefore, it is specialization that an atmospheric scientist may want to attain. According to the Occupational Information Network, atmospheric scientists research and investigate atmospheric phenomena. They also interpret meteorological data. They prepare forecasts and reports for both public and other use. A bachelor's degree in meteorology is necessary for atmospheric sciences; however, in order for an atmospheric scientist to advance, one may have to attain a master's or Ph.D. with an atmospheric science specialization, such as climatology. climate science is the scientific study of climate, scientifically defined as weather conditions averaged over a period of time. This modern field of study is regarded as a branch of the atmospheric sciences and a subfield of physical geography, which is one of the Earth sciences. Climatology now includes aspects of oceanography and biogeochemistry. The main methods employed by climatologists are the analysis of observations and modelling the physical laws that determine the climate. The main topics of research are the study of climate variability, mechanisms of climate changes and modern climate change. Basic knowledge of climate can be used within shorter term weather forecasting, for instance about climatic cycles such as the El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO), the Madden–Julian oscillation (MJO), the North Atlantic oscillation (NAO), the Arctic oscillation (AO), the Pacific decadal oscillation (PDO), and the Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation (IPO).
