I come from a background in research in pure Mathematics and, after a period of self-learning, I am currently looking for a career in Deep Learning. I recently applied for a job in Deep Learning and Meteorology in the agriculture sector.

They actually showed interest in my application, but asked me to propose a concrete plan for increasing my competence in the domain of meteorology. By any means, I don't want you to do the work for me, but I would like some experts to point me in the right direction to come up with this plan.

  1. What are the fundamental papers/books on meteorology that are relevant in agriculture?
  2. What are some important papers on the state-of-the-art of Deep Learning applications in meteorology?

If you think that there are more appropriate platforms where I could ask this questions or have other suggestions in general, please let me know. Thank you.

    $\begingroup$ Given that you've mentioned meteorology & agriculture I'm assuming that is your intended focus, as opposed to formation of hurricanes & predicting their paths & strengths, amongst other meteorological events. Regarding agriculture, are you interested in agricultural meteorology for a particular part of the world, or global? Different weather systems affect different parts of the world: El Nino LaNina Southern Oscillation Index in the Pacific Ocean, the India Ocean Dipole, the Southern Annual Mode (proximity of wind to Antarctica, the jet streams, just to name a small selection. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ How much do you already know about meteorology, chemistry, physics, applied mathematics, artificial intelligence, and of course deep learning? It's a big jump from pure mathematics to not only applied mathematics, but also a field that uses applied mathematics (and doesn't care much about pure mathematics). It would help to know your background. $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 31, 2022 at 23:48
  • $\begingroup$ @Fred Your assumption is correct. It is my understanding that the company works mainly in Europe. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @DavidHammen At the moment I know nothing about meteorology and my chemistry knowledge is high school level. I studied quite some physics in university, so I'd say I have a comprehensive but not specialized knowledge of the subject. I have studied some applied math and I am confident I can tackle new topics in that domain. For what concerns Deep Learning, I understand how neural networks work and some fundamental architectures: CNNs, LSTMs, Autoencoders... $\endgroup$
