. . . Quantifying aircraft wing turbulence and subsequent effects upon the four major jet streams of the planet seems a dubious venture. If it can be done, how would it be done? In some ways it would seem like trying to measure how large tanker propeller turbulence upon the seas affects ocean gyre. One can see the local effects of churning, but that churned air / water is soon absorbed into the vast volumes each is in. Given that global air and water currents work together along with planetary motion and seasonal positions it seems quite a task at best almost akin to taming the weather which uses at least air and water to make it. The margin of error from laboratory settings to planetary would also seem an extreme to accurately calculate. . . Whether it makes it commercially inconvenient or not to ask the questions one doesn’t know, but carrying out the tasking scientifically is another matter. Just how one propagates identical conditions for accurate measurement I doubt meteorologists even know the answer to that one and they deal with those contributing ingredients of weather (air / water / heat / motion, for starters) on a daily basis. . .
