Surface-layer gusts for aircraft operation

G.S. Young, L. Kristensen

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearch


    We use Monin-Obukhov similarity theory to extend the Kristensen et al. (1991) aviation gust estimation technique from the neutral to the diabatic surface layer. Example calculations demonstrate the importance of this correction. Simple stability class methods using only standard aviation surface observations are shown to be useful although less accurate and less precise than methods which make full use of Monin-Obukhov similarity results.
