Weather & Meteorology

Weather affects everyday lives and worldwide social structures. The field of meteorology attempts to forecast these phenomena through the study of the evolution and composition of the atmosphere. Wolfram|Alpha provides access to an extensive and continually updated database of weather information and forecasts as well as numerous tools for analyzing and calculating atmospheric conditions.
