Use of Isogon: Isovel Charts and the Isogon-Deviation Field in Forecasting Atmospheric Turbulence,
NAVY WEATHER RESEARCH FACILITY NORFOLK VA
Pagination or Media Count:
The use of Isogon-Isovel charts and the Isogen-Deviation Field in forecasting atmospheric turbulence shows considerable promise. In the present study the verifications were far from perfect but are considered to be quite good in view of the fact that the charts represent an instantaneous field at one level only and the turbulence reports cover a 12 hour period during which time the streamline divergence and convergence patterns sweep out considerable areas. No corrections for synoptic pattern stability or other criteria were made.
