Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
"Overview of Satellite-based Aviation Application for Detection of Thunderstorms, Turbulence and Volcanic Ash"
Date: Tuesday, March 2nd
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Wayne Feltz, UW-Madison, Dept. of Space Science and Engineering Center
Abstract: The University of Wisconsin-Madison Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) Satellite Nowcasting and Aviation APplication (SNAAP) team is heavily involved in research to develop satellite-based nowcasting tools (0-3 hour forecast) for improving aviation weather forecasting. Current areas of research focus on satellite detection of aviation hazards such as convection, turbulence, and volcanic ash using current and future weather satellite systems. This seminar will overview this research as well as in context toward improvement of future air transportation route planning and warning for the general public.
