The contribution of aviation to climate change is outlined, covering aviation CO2 emissions and non-CO2 effects.

Regarding the latter, aircraft-induced clouds (AIC, man-made ice clouds composed of persistent contrails and contrail cirrus) are responsible for the greatest climate impact.

AIC are therefore discussed in greater detail, including an outline of the fundamental ice crystal formation process.

The seminar discusses options to reduc aviation’s climate impact in the near term.
