Aviation Turbulence: Processes, Detection, Prediction – 1st ed. 2016 Edition ( 2016 )
Editors: Sharman, Robert, Lane, Todd (Eds.)Update of the current state of knowledge and research in the area of aviation-scale turbulenceCovers the full range of topics important to forecasters, engineers, and researchers interested in better understanding the nature of aviation-scale turbulence, remote and in-situ sensing of turbulence and forecasting and verification of turbulenceWritten by recognized aviation turbulence researchersAnyone who has experienced turbulence in flight knows that it is usually not pleasant, and may wonder why this is so difficult to avoid.
The book includes papers by various aviation turbulence researchers and provides background into the nature and causes of atmospheric turbulence that affect aircraft motion, and contains surveys of the latest techniques for remote and in situ sensing and forecasting of the turbulence phenomenon. It provides updates on the state-of-the-art research since earlier studies in the 1960s on clear-air turbulence, explains recent new understanding into turbulence generation by thunderstorms, and summarizes future challenges in turbulence prediction and avoidance.Number of Illustrations and Tables79 b/w illustrations, 67 illustrations in colourTopicsAerospace Technology and AstronauticsAtmospheric SciencesGeophysics and Environmental PhysicsClick Here to Buy the Hardcover from SpringerPurchase a Premium account from Download Link for Multiple/High Speed And Support :)Click Here for More books
