Science - Meteorology / Hole-punch clouds
English term or phrase: dimatologist
Hole-punch clouds are formed when ice crystals from a higher cloud deck fall onto a lower one. The hole is formed by ice crystals falling downward, not upward as Molinaro postulated. Super-cooled water droplets in the lower cloud adhere to the crystals, enlarging them and leaving a space around them in the cloud. The crystal mass accumulates weight and then falls farther, below the second cloud, evaporating when it hits warmer air.
The key factor is that this process can only happen at below freezing temperatures.
The temperature at 1,900 feet above O'Hare Airport the day of the sighting was 53 degrees F, according to the National Weather Service. The dimatologists and other weather experts I spoke to all stated that temperatures must be below freezing for a hole-punch cloud to explain the sighting.

Первый раз встречаю такое слово (из книги, выпущенной в 2011 году) и не могу найти его толкование ни в одном электронном словаре. Google индексирует множество ссылок на научные статьи, в одной из которых (http://www.homeschoollearning.com/estore/cd_physical.shtml - Archaeology Unit Study) приведена краткая расшифровка этой дисциплины в скобках: the study of weather patterns. В тексте автор, как мне кажется, разграничивает dimatologists (узкоспециальное направление) и weather experts (более широкое). Вторых я бы причислил к метеорологам, а вот с первыми затрудняюсь.

Explanation:
I am pretty sure this should read climatologist. I have seen cases where word recognition software making this error.

For example here:
Google says: CURRENT RESEARCH. An Oklahoma dimatology of precipitation echoes.
However, if you actually go to the link and read. The word is climatology.
