Abstract
The study of meteorology deals with measurements of such parameters as pressure, temperature, humidity, wind, cloud cover, cloud altitude, and precipitation. Until the advent of weather satellites adequate coverage on a global basis was not feasible. However, since the satellite moves in an orbit which is outside the atmosphere, spacecraft measurements of meteorological parameters must be limited to those that can be sensed by electro-magnetic radiation. In some cases as we shall see later, it is possible to infer some meteorological parameters by indirect methods.
