Scenario of aircraft emissions and impact studies on chemistry and climate

Objective

The continued expected growth in aviation will be met in part by new fleets of supersonic aircraft. The environmental impact of this growth was considered by IPCC 1999 however many of the IPCC conclusions had a large uncertainty range.
The important questions are:
1. How large will be the impact on atmospheric composition and climate of futureaviation?
2. How can we reduce the possible environmental impacts?
In a unique partnership between industry and atmospheric scientists we will address these questions by developing new emission scenarios and performing state-of-the-art numerical modelling studies to deliver improved understanding of impact which will influence the detailed design and operation of a new supersonic fleet.
