U.S. Military Aviation & Marine Weather


Our atmosphere is in a constant state of change. Because the ability of our military services to respond rapidly to flashpoints around the world and to properly train for their respective missions is highly dependent upon the weather, each U.S. military service maintains units responsible for monitoring, prediction and research of atmospheric and oceanographic conditions ranging in scale from local to global. With the advent of spaceflight and the high degree of reliance we now place upon satellites for communication and surveillance, this mission has been extended into the upper atmosphere and magnetosphere of Earth to encompass what has come to be known as space weather.
