Japan’s fastest supercomputer used to simulate clear air turbulence

The researchers believe this will help build a more predictive model to prevent future incidents of dangerous clear air turbulence.

Besides poor visibility, icing, and bird, mid-flight turbulence is one of the most common causes of aircraft accidents.

Clear air turbulence (CAT) is a truly significant aviation hazard. It’s invisible, mostly cloud-free, hard to predict, and the most dangerous type of turbulence. It can be caused by jet streams, gravity waves, or cumulus clouds.
