Advancing the Science for Aviation and ClimAte


Report on the observational climatology of cloud-active aviation aerosol, including ice nucleating abilities of contrail processed INPs

D 1.1 is an outcome of Task 1.1. It describes the aviation aerosol climatology extracted from IAGOS data and first analyses based on these data. It describes in a second part the results from the laboratory measurements on real aircraft soot.

Strategic roadmap and agenda available for scientific assessments, i.e., IPCC, WMO

This deliverable, produced as a service of task 5.1, is to help organisation of the dissemination of scientific results of ACACIA into international assessments (e.g. IPCC). Deadlines for the submission of results and texts will be collected and announced within the consortium.

Report on methodological gaps in addressing the climate effects of aviation by field campaigns

This is a deliverable from Task 3.1. It will collect results from a literature study and provide lessons learned. It is the groundwork for setting up concepts for new measurement campaigns.
