Aircraft Exhaust Emissions [15 July 2003]

This sub-programme is identifying, characterising and assessing the impact of aircraft emissions on global climate change and on local air quality. Pollutants from aircraft include CO2, NOx, particulates and water vapour in the form of contrails. It is concerned with related issues such as how the emissions are formed and how to measure them. And with the development and assessment of proposed measures to counter their adverse environmental impact.
