Abstract

Vertical and horizontal deviations between an air trajectory and isobaric and isentropic trajectories are presented in a convenient form for order-of-magnitude comparisons and interpretation. Also, an objective method for computing isentropic trajectories is developed which is based on the total-energy equation.
