  • DLR researchers understand soot formation in engines DLR - Aeronautics

    2019-03-25 08:35:54
    Aviation is not only responsible for carbon dioxide emissions; it also causes other emissions that have an impact on climate change, in particular soot particles. These are produced both on the ground and at cruising altitudes, where they act as condensation nuclei for ice crystals and lead to the formation of contrails, which may linger in the sky as contrail cirrus clouds.
