Forecasting Low Visibility Procedure States and Resulting Capacities of Airports
The project will develop an experimental forecasting system for the probability of the occurrence of low-visibility-procedure-states and different instrument-landing-system categories at three different Austrian airports. Poor visibility conditions reduce capacity at these airports leading to delays and/or flight cancellations.
Modern statistical methods combined with historical and current observational, measurement and numerical weather prediction model data are at the core of the forecasting system. The best method will be selected using an end-user (Air Traffic Management) metric (cost-loss).
