Since climate has a great effect on everyday life, climatology expert witnesses may be asked to provide an expert opinion regarding numerous types of cases. Climatology expert consulting may be sought out for lawsuits involving weather-related details and the corresponding areas of study, such as meteorology and the various methods of weather forecasting. Unlike meteorology, however, which is utilized to foresee weather patterns in a short-term time frame of days or weeks, climatology is utilized as a means of studying long-term effects of weather conditions, whether it concerns the course of months or even years into the future.
Climatology expert witnesses may have experience with weather risk assessment as a means of predicting such weather-related disasters as flooding, hurricanes, tornadoes, excessive rainfall, droughts, hail damage, lightening, storms, or other related incidents. Climatology experts are able to gather such information via the use of radar, satellite images, and other products and technology of environmental science. Wildfire management, for instance, may be implemented by predicting the weather conditions that would lead to such fires, which could then be contained and planned for in advance.
Climatology also makes use of data analysis, statistical evidence, surveying, and scientific visualization, which are used to study approaching weather conditions. Climatology expert witnesses are also knowledgeable in atmospheric science, which is a major component of climate conditions.
