Turbulence

Accurate forecasts at any altitude.

Turbulence

  • Graphical Turbulence Guidance (GTG) – turbulence intensities for flight level 200+, out to 12 hours; updated hourly; utilizes numerical weather prediction models, pilot reports; operational FY 03

  • Planned efforts: all flight levels, CIT, MWT, Alaska, probabilistic, inputs from radar, in-situ, & surface obs

  • Timelier and more accurate analyses and forecasts of turbulence

Oceanic weather

Accurate forecasts of oceanic weather hazards

are critical to flight safety.

Oceanic Weather

  • Accurate & timely nowcasts/forecasts along oceanic routes

  • Oceanic Products:

    • Convective Diagnosis, Nowcast, & Forecast

    • Cloud top height

    • Flight Level Winds

    • Volcanic Ash

    • Inflight Icing

    • Turbulence

  • Demo Uplink: Cloud Top

    Height; planned: convective
