CLEAR AIR TURBULENCE

Dr. Paul Rosenberg

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: PROBLEMS of clear air turbulence (CAT) are surveyed. A definition of CAT and categories of different types of CAT are proposed. The inadequacy of mesoscale forecasting of CAT, and the seeming impossibility of microscale forecasting of CAT, point to the necessity for an airborne device for advance detection of CAT. Observational research in the physics and meteorology of CAT is needed. Possible CAT detection methods are summarized. Requirements for a detection device are enumerated. Other CAT activities are mentioned. CAT is an important unsolved aviation problem, particularly for the SST.
