From the Carthage College website, 2023: “Carthage offers students the opportunity to minor in climatology and meteorology. This minor is directed to students who are interested in studying climate change and global warming issues or pursuing atmospheric scholarship and research.
“Climatologists and meteorologists are atmospheric scientists. They study the atmosphere’s physical characteristics, motions and processes, and how these factors affect the environment.
“Their research is important for weather forecasting; weather analysis; air pollution control; climate trend analysis and research of such phenomena as droughts, global warming, and ozone depletion; agriculture and farming; defense; and air and sea transportation.
“Students studying climatology and meteorology at Carthage have many opportunities to enrich their education. Students can get involved in a number of student organizations, enroll in an innovative month-long course for J-Term either on campus or in another country, and work one-on-one with a professor over the summer doing research work.”
