Barry's Response - Ria:

Hey, degrees in those fields aren't necessary, but strengths in each of those fields are. Some countries have schools that teach meteorology and award degrees. Some of them require math, physics, geography, and chemistry.

Here are some employers in the Caribbean:

This last one has a Canadian connection, so I'm interested in it. Bellairs Research Institute is a field station operated by McGill University on Barbados' west coast. It was founded in 1954 by a Canadian geologist named James Bellairs.

The institute supports fields like marine biology, ecology, geology, and archaeology. Because of its diverse Caribbean environment, Bellairs Research Institute attracts researchers from all over. Visiting researchers have access to labs, lecture facilities, and accommodations on site. In addition to coral reefs and marine reserves, it has a variety of terrestrial ecosystems, so it's a great place to study natural resources.

Generally, these employers do weather forecasting, climate monitoring, data analysis, and research. Their education and credentials might depend on their position and level of responsibility.
