  • The ranking is done for the 500 largest airports in the world.
  • For each airport, the average turbulence is computed over 100 km diameter circle sorrounding it, at its base elevation and at 4000 m (13000 ft) above it.
  • Turbulence is given in eddy dissipation rate (edr). The turbulence levels are light (0-20), moderate (20-40), severe (40-80) and extreme (80-100).
