Forensic meteorologists can also be called an atmospheric scientist, physicist or chemist. The meteorologist prepares for the job of weather forecasting with a minimum of a B.A. in meteorology, chemistry or physics. Other 4 year degrees that prepare a meteorologist are mathematics electrical engineering and computer engineering. A master's degree or doctorate degree is required for more advanced weather forecasting jobs.

Events reconstruction - The forensic meteorologist can re-construct weather events and perform air quality modeling on software that assists attorneys and claim reviewers in modeling the correct atmospheric conditions that caused damage or injury. Re-constructing weather events doesn't have to be done on software. Meteorologists can use the process of reconstructing weather events by getting the local weather reports backed up by radar, satellite pictures and accounts reported by eyewitnesses to the event.

Forensic meteorology experts use air quality software in industry pollution cases and to map the toxic concentration levels that are moved by weather events. These mappings offer support to the attorney and client cases which involve:
  • Air Pollution,
  • Reduced Visibility,
  • Severe Storms,
  • Wind Damage,
  • Flooding and hazardous material spills and releases into the atmosphere.
