Clear air turbulence (CAT) in India and neighbourhood
The present study of CAT over India and neighbourhood has been based on the inflight and -post flight reports received and on the debrief reports given by national and international operators during the period January 1966 to December 1969. CAT has been studied in its spatial and vertical distribution on the basis of, 32 available data. The effects of various upper air flow patterns, such as westerly and easterly jets and wind discontinuity etc. Contributing to the occurrence of CAT, have also been studied, An attempt has also been made in this paper towards the detection of favourable conditions for occurrence of CAT. The role of temperature distribution and pools of cold and warm air in the upper air have been discussed, Some typical examples of the phenomenon , have been illustrated.
