Abstract

Contrails are ice clouds that form behind aircraft. As a result of burning kerosene in the engines, water vapor is emitted that rapidly freezes and forms ice crystals. If the atmosphere is sufficiently moist and cold, these contrails expand and persist for many hours. This chapter describes the numerical modeling of contrails on a local scale with cloud resolving simulations. Emphasis is put on the description of microphysical modeling. With this methodological approach valuable information on contrail evolution for a multitude of atmospheric and aircraft parameters can be obtained.
