Improving Meteorological Information for Air Transport - a new publication by a CAeM expert
We are pleased to announce that Mr Jaakko Nuottokari from the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) has recently completed a very interesting research which has been published as a Licentiate thesis under the title Improving Meteorological Information to Air Transport. This thesis provides an overview of the field of aeronautical meteorological research by introducing the organizations involved, global and regional strategies, impacts of weather on air transport, current state of the art in meteorological research and decision support systems serving air transport needs with a view of where the field should evolve next. The thesis is an attempt to highlight key findings and point the reader towards the direction of further research on the given topics.
Jaakko has been contributing to the work of the WMO CAeM for a number of years as a member of the Expert Team on Governance (ET-GOV). His publication is strongly recommended as a thorough overview of the current research efforts in the area of MET support to Air Traffic Management. We are happy to congratulate Jaakko for his achievement!
