Airplanes Make Clouds Brighter

New Study In The Journal 'Nature Communications' Focuses On Contrails

Clouds may have a net warming or cooling effect on climate, depending on their thickness and altitude. Artificially formed clouds called contrails form due to aircraft effluent, in a cloudless sky, contrails are thought to have minimal effect on climate. But what happens when the sky is already cloudy? In a new study published in the journal Nature Communications, scientists from the University of Hertfordshire and Stockholm University show that contrails that are formed within existing high clouds increase the reflectivity of these clouds, i.e. their ability to reflect light.

Aero-News: Quote Of The Day (06.27.16)

"We have to learn to come together, to support each other, to make each other flyer’s problems our own and to realize that we, as a community, are an extraordinary group of human beings… FLYERS!

BUT… until we learn to act together as a synergistic, mutually supportive community, we are our own worst enemy." Source: ANN's Jim Campbell, discussing changes; technical, legal and social, needed to build a fuiture for the aviation world.
