Meteorology is, or was at last count, atmospheric physics. Meteorology
is simply one of the many specialities in physics, and a true
"Meteorolgist" holds his/her degree in physics. (Now this statement
will no doubt get me flamed, but it is a fact.)
Your average TV Weatherman is not generally a true meteorologist, has
never launched a weather balloon with a radiosonde attached, and lacks
the physics background to construct a pseudoadiabatic diagram from the
resulting information gained, or to interpret it.
Atmospheric physics/dynamics is the foundation of Meteorology, and is
a subject that arguably creates more "brain fry" than do many other
specialities in physics.
