1341 — Meteorological Technician Series***
This series covers one-grade interval technical positions that supervise, lead, or perform nonprofessional work in weather forecasting, observation, documentation, research, or other areas of meteorology. Meteorological technicians observe and analyze weather elements or predict the effects of weather in the atmosphere and on the earth’s surface. This requires practical knowledge of meteorological equipment, principles, and methods, as well as skill in collecting data, making observations, forecasting weather, and verifying data. Work in this series does not require full professional knowledge equivalent to that represented by completion of a bachelor’s degree in meteorology.
