As the aviation industry is expanding, the contrails of airplanes are expected to contribute to global climate change significantly.
That 2.9 percent water vapor amounts to about five pounds of water per second poured into a contrail by a widebody aircraft.
The ML-CIRRUS experiment deployed the new research aircraft HALO together with satellites and models to gain neW insights into nucleation, life cycle, predictability, and climate impact of natural cirrus and anthropogenic contrail cirrus.
Thus, early explorations about contrail detection mainly exploit the visual examination to detect contrails in satellite images.
STC's new Contrail Networking-based service platform reduces time-to-market
The theory first gained popularity in 1996 when the US Air Force was accused of spraying the population with mysterious substances from aircraft generating unusual contrail patterns.
