Turbulence is ubiquitous in planetary atmospheres, but it is of particular interest in Earth's atmosphere,
because of its impact on flying planes. Commercial aircraft encounter significant turbulence tens of thousands of times
each year worldwide, injuring hundreds of passengers (occasionally fatally) and costing airlines tens of millions of
dollars. This talk will describe a new method for predicting patches of turbulence in advance. The talk will also
describe how turbulence might change in future because of climate change. This latter topic attracted high media
interest when our paper was published last month!
