Abstract:

Clear air turbulence is recognized as one of the unsolved problems in aviation meteorology. While the intensity of this high level or wind shear turbulence is not as severe as thunderstorm turbulence, it can result in injuries to passengers and crew, possible loss of control of the aircraft, and in some extreme cases some actual damage to the aircraft. The high level turbulence encounters are all the more dangerous because they usually occur without any visual warning. Work on this problem can be divided into four main categories Data collection and analysis, theoretical studies, development of forecast techniques, and detection or warning devices. Author
