Detecting Aircraft Turbulence with Laser Radar

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
COLOGNE, Germany, Aug. 9, 2013 — A laser-based method of detecting unsteady airflow could provide a solution to sudden airplane turbulence. Clear-air turbulence (CAT) occurs independently of cloud cover, making it neither visible to the eye nor measurable with sensors. Recent results in atmospheric research indicate that such turbulence will occur more frequently in the future due to climate change. Wind shear often occurs along the jet stream. This involves extended layers of air that move against each other horizontally at different speeds. Particularly strong wind shear can create waves that ultimately...Read full article
