Reducing Aviation’s Climate Impact with In-Flight Measures: ‘Flying low and slow’ and ‘Climate-optimised Intermediate Stop Operations’

2022-10-26T12:16:45+02:00October 26th, 2022|Categories: News|Tags: , , |

Global aviation and its emissions contribute to anthropogenic impact on climate. Carbon dioxide (CO2) has a long-term effect on climate over several decades, with the consequence that the CO2 greenhouse effect is independent of daytime, altitude and weather situation. Unlike non-CO2 emission’s climate impact, CO2 […]

Preparing for climate-optimized trajectories

2021-11-30T18:56:27+01:00November 10th, 2021|Categories: News|Tags: , , , |

Aviation climate effects of non-CO2 emissions depend on location and time of emission. In order to mitigate aviation’s climate effect, the mitigation strategy of climate-optimized trajectories aims to avoid flying through those regions of the atmosphere which are particularly sensitive to aviation emissions (e.g. regions where persistent contrails […]
