TURBULENCE DEFINED AND CLASSIFIED
Turbulence is any irregular or disturbed flow in the atmosphere producing gusts and/or eddies.
Occurrences of turbulence are local in extent and transient in character. Although general
forecasts of turbulence are quite good, forecasting precise locations is difficult.
Turbulence intensity is classified using a subjective scale. Figure 5-1 contains the four intensity
levels and the three time descriptors used by aircrews when giving a Pilot Report (PIREP), which
details the in-flight weather. You can see how individual crewmembers of the same aircraft
might disagree on the degree of turbulence they encountered. Realize moderate turbulence for a
B-52 could be severe or extreme for a T-34.
