An automated procedure for forecasting mid- and upper-level turbulence that affects aircraft is described. This procedure, termed the Graphical Turbulence Guidance system, uses output from numerical weather prediction model forecasts to derive many turbulence diagnostics that are combined as a weighted sum with the relative weights computed to give best agreement with the Cited by: Remote Versus In Situ Turbulence Measurements: Authors: Frost, Walter: Publication: Atmospheric Turbulence Relative to aviation, Missile, and Space Programs, Proceedings of a workshop held April, at Langley Research Center, Hampton, VA.

Edited by Dennis W. Camp and Walter Frost. Forecasting aviation turbulence remains a challenge in the twenty-first century because of the small temporal and spatial scales of the phenomenon and the multiplicity of causes of the turbulence.

The current state of our understanding of aviation-scale turbulence processes and overviews of current detection and forecasting methods were provided in previous chapters of this book.

Aviation weather forecasting has seen many government as well as airline efforts over the last 80– years. By World War II, military aircraft such as the B were able to reach altitudes of o ft. This initiated the need for weather forecasting Cited by: 2.

Currently, the only routinely available observational data for aviation-scale atmospheric turbulence are PIREPs. Over the past 2 yr, automated turbulence observations have become available from in situ measurements of eddy dissipation rate (actually ε 1/3) (Cornman et al.) from selected United Airlines (UAL) B and B aircraft.

However, because of the limited route Cited by: Atmospheric Turbulence Modeling for Aero Vehicles: Fractional Order Fits George Kopasakis National Aeronautics and Space Administration Glenn Research Center Cleveland, Ohio Abstract Atmospheric turbulence models are necessary for the design of both inlet/engine and flight controls, as well as for studying.

On average, tens of commercial airline passengers are injured each year over the continental United States during turbulence-related aviation incidents.

Such turbulence has a variety of sources including wind shear–induced Kelvin–Helmholtz instabilities (e.g., Sekioka ; Werne and Fritts ), mountain-wave breaking (e.g., Clark et al Cited by: Rapid time scale (10 s or less) fluctuations in the magnetic field measurement were related to the motion of the radiosonde, which was strongly influenced by atmospheric turbulence.

Comparison with cloud radar measurements showed turbulence in regions where Cited by: "Turbulence is the leading cause of injuries in commercial aviation," said John Haynes, program manager in the Earth Science Division's Applied Sciences Program at NASA Headquarters in Washington.

"This new work to detect the likelihood of turbulence associated with oceanic storms using key space-based indicators is of crucial importance to.

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): PREFACE A portion of NASA's aviation safety activities has involved obtaining a clearer understanding of weather-related phenomena.

Atmospheric turbulence has always been of concern, not only for aircraft but also for missile and space programs as well. InRichard Tobiason of the NASA Headquarters. Researchers at NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va., developed TPAWS to detect turbulence associated with thunderstorms as part of the NASA Aviation Safety and Security Program.

NASA has teamed with Delta Air Lines, Atlanta; AeroTech Research, Hampton. Atmospheric turbulence encounters are the leading cause of injuries to passengers and flight crews in non-fatal airline accidents.

FAA statistics show an average of 58 airline passengers are annually injured in U.S.

Many of these observations (Worthington, ; Pavelin et al.,; Whiteway et al., ) not only register more turbulence at the tropopause region, but also link the turbulence to atmospheric waves.
