The trends toward increased aircraft electrification, greater reliability and higher fuel efficiency are on the rise, and consequently driving the need for increasingly capable, lighter and smaller TVS solutions that provide superior protection against transient over-voltage occurrences.
Examples of specific topics covered include aircraft electrification, airmass, anabatic wind, boundary layer, convection, Dansgaard-Oeschger event, Dobson spectrophotometer, gradient wind, katabatic wind, meteorology, noble gases, pollution control, temperature scales, waterspout, and Venturi effect.
