Meteorology In Japan

Postby SenescenceReign » Wed 07.18.2007 5:57 pm

For the past few years, in and out of college, I've been trying to decide what to do with myself. I finally decided, I will determine what I enjoy most, and once I've figured that out all I will have to do is combine all my interests to get my dream job! It was a cinch to decide where my interests lay- meteorology, and Japan.


My question is, I can understand there being a very large following for the field of hydrology and oceanography, but is there a particular need for meterology experts in Japan? While everyone needs meteorologists, I'm mostly curious as to whether or not there's anything worth studying there- I've been spoiled on Tornado Alley's particularly interesting storm activity...

Of course, I'm not sitting here saying, "I'm going to get a degree and then get over there!" because it's unrealistic to even begin to think it's that easy. Consider this a passing fancy, just curiousity. Any check I've done on severe or intriguing weather in the country seems to only turn up the usual- nothing fancy. What should I know?

Thanks so much!

Plenty of typhoons pass that way.
