This volume collects oral and poster contributions to the "2nd International Conference on Transport, Atmosphere and Climate (TAC-2)" held in Aachen and Maastricht, 2009. With the objective of updating our knowledge on the impacts of transport on the composition of the atmosphere and on climate, the TAC-2 conference covered all aspects of the impact of the different modes of transport (aviation, road transport, shipping etc.) on atmospheric chemistry, cloud physics, radiation and climate, in particular:

Engine emissions (gaseous and particulate), emission scenarios and emission data bases for transport, near-field and plume processes, effective emissions, transport impact on the chemical composition of the atmosphere, transport impact on aerosols, contrails, contrail cirrus, ship tracks, indirect cloud effects (e.g., aerosol-cloud interaction), radiative forcing, impact on climate, metrics for measuring climate change and damage, mitigation of transport impacts by technological changes in vehicles and engines, mitigation of transport impacts by operational means.
