Abstract
The paper describes the ability of a high-resolution Computational Fluid Dynamics model to predict terrain-induced turbulence and wind shear close to the ground for aviation safety. The capabilities of the model are demonstrated by applying it to the Sandnessjøen Airport, Stokka, in Norway, an airport that is located in a mountainous area. The model is able to forecast turbulence in real time and trigger an alert when atmospheric conditions might result in high wind shear and turbulence. It is nested with two coarser grid mesoscale meteorological models, and constitute an hourly operational turbulence forecast system for 20 Norwegian airports at the time of writing.
