Abstract : The study describes a semi-objective method for forecasting low level turbulence for light aircraft operation, designed primarily for use in Korea. Maximum surface or gradient level wind speeds and low level stability are used as predictors. The method can be applied in any area where mechanical turbulence due to rough terrain occurs. (Author)
