Climate change could be creating more turbulence on flights, research shows

June 6, 2023

ABC7 News - Professor Fred Barez, Chair of the Aviation and Technology department joined the conversation with the abc7News on Tuesday, June 6 to add his insights to the studies. He demonstrated the research conducted in the Aviation lab when changes in atmospheric temperature create wind shear. As the Earth warms up, it radiates hot air and as the hot air moves up into the atmosphere it triggers what is known as clear air turbulence.
