Climatologists are interested in identifying long-term climate phenomena and reporting on its possible causes and implications on the earth's environment. They may prepare long-term forecasts for seasonal conditions and for climate change, studying records and conducting environmental tests as well as using advanced modelling software. There are some positions within the discipline of climatology which are available to bachelor level graduates (particularly those who have completed honours) these may include research and laboratory assistance roles. To take the title of "climatologist" however, and to complete independent research, post-graduate qualifications, usually at a PhD level are almost always required.
