Explainer: Clean air turbulence

A great column in Forbes magazine about what clean air turbulence is, why it happens, why it’s hard to avoid, and how meteorologists might soon be able to do a better job of predicting it. No specific mention of NextGen, though the author makes the point that one of the problems today is the low-resolution nature of aviation forecasts. Clearly, if the visionaries in the FAA weather group have their way, this should change within a couple of years.
