Persistent contrail coverage (in % area cover) based on meteorological analysis data and on the fuel emission database for 2050 (IS92 fuel consumption scenario for 2050) assuming a linear dependence on fuel consumption and an overall efficiency of propulsion h of 0.5; global mean cover is 0.5%. Compare with Figure 3.4.5. (From Gierens et al., 1998.)
