air temperature

The various types of temperatures include:
i. Indicated air temperature (IAT). The uncorrected reading from the free air temperature gauge.
ii. Basic air temperature (BAT). The indicated air temperature corrected for instrument error.
iii. True air temperature (TAT). The basic air temperature corrected for the temperature rise resulting from the heat of compression and skin friction. Also known as outside air temperature (OAT).
iv. Corrected mean temperature. The temperature of the static air; this is the same as ambient temperature and true air temperature.
v. Ram air temperature (RAT). The static air temperature plus temperature rise because of compressibility. It is usually 80% of true air temperature.
vi. Total air temperature (TAT). The temperature actually sensed by the temperature probe (i.e., BAT or basic air temperature). It is ambient temperature plus rise resulting from compressibility plus rise from skin friction.
