Pollution from Aircraft Emissions in the North Atlantic Flight Corridor

The overall objectives of the project are:
  1. To determine by measurements and analysis the relative contribution from air traffic exhaust emissions to the composition of the lower stratosphere and upper troposphere at altitudes between 9 and 13 km within and near the flight corridor over the North Atlantic.

  2. To assess the effects of air traffic emissions in that region in relation to clean background concentrations and pollutant concentrations from various sources and to analyse their importance for changes in ozone, oxidizing capacity, aerosols and clouds.
