Turbulence and Icing
Aviation products from specialized numerical weather prediction predict the evolution of weather elements that can affect aircrafts in flight, such as turbulence and icing (ice accumulation on aircrafts); to provide guidance to airline operators and pilots for flight planning.
Volcanic ash suspended in the atmosphere can cause significant damage to aircrafts in flight. The products of the Montreal Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) aim to inform (civil) aircraft operators of the presence and evolution of volcanic ash clouds after known eruptions.
