Scientific Topics

The scope of the conference covers all aspects of the impact of the different modes of transport (aviation, road transport, shipping etc.) on atmospheric chemistry, micro-physics, radiation and climate. In particular, papers on the following topics are welcome:

  • 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 (e.g., low NOx engines, alternative fuels),
  • mitigation of transport impacts by operational means (e.g., air traffic management, environmental flight and ship routing).

Observational, experimental, remote sensing and modelling studies are encouraged.
