  • Why are "Weather people" called Meteorologist when they don't study meteors?

    The name meteorologist indicates someone who studies meteors.

    Meteors are outer space rocks, which would fall under people who study rocks, like geologist.

    I would venture to say that no Weather Man/Woman has ever seen a metor, yet alone study one.

    I would think a more accurate term would be "Climetologist or Weatherologist.
