Turbulence is a state of extreme motion resulting in uncontrollable movement.

When the Ares IV orbiter was intercepted by a graviton ellipse, the orbiter encountered extreme turbulence, in which it was thought to have been hit by a solar flare. (VOY: "One Small Step")

In 2372, Tom Paris was able to generate a dielectric field with a Class 2 shuttle's warp coils in order to avoid extreme turbulence on a Drayan moon, which sent Lieutenant Tuvok's shuttle crashing down to the surface. (VOY: "Innocence")

In the first draft script of ENT: "Fusion" (which had the working title "Equilibrium"), just before heading into the Arachnid Nebula, Enterprise NX-01 detected, in Malcolm Reed's words, "a few pockets of turbulence" (as well as gravimetric shear) ahead of the ship.
