Contrail-cirrus, other non-CO2 effects and Smart Flying

Event date


The aim of this event is to bring together the atmospheric science and civil aircraft operating communities to consider the prospects for reducing the climate impact of contrail-cirrus by re-routing air traffic to avoid the localised regions of cold moist air in which persistent contrails form.

Out of the discussions it is hoped that guidance and priorities will emerge to determine the direction of research in both communities, stimulate new co-operative projects within the EC research framework and influence the forward thinking of policy makers.
