Scientific Topics

The main topics of the DLR 5th International Conference on Transport, Atmosphere and Climate are:

  • Vehicle emissions from engine and other sources (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 of transport,
  • Transport 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, adapted vehicles/aircraft),
  • Mitigation of transport impacts by operational means (e.g., air traffic management, environmental friendly flights and ship routing).
