Contrails: Their atmospheric impact and mitigation strategies

Gierens, Klaus Martin (2008) Contrails: Their atmospheric impact and mitigation strategies. Towards Sustainable Aviation Propulsion, 2008-11-19, Bristol (UK).

Full text not available from this repository.


Contrails and contrail cirrus, anthropogenic ice clouds in the upper troposphere, impede the free outflow of long-wave radiation to space; hence they contribute to the greenhouse effect. Their formation is controlled by atmospheric thermodynamic properties and by aircraft and fuel characteristics. Contrail avoidance strategies need to take account of these thermodynamic constraints. It seems that operational contrail mitigation options can be realised easier than technical options.
