ECATS Student School 2009
Last year’s ECATS Student School covered the subject of Global Aviation Impact and Green Flight. It took place 19-23 Oct 2009Â in La-Londe-des-Maures in southernÂ France.
The school focussed on how aviation emissions affect the atmosphere and hence climate. Topics cover emission formation by aircraft engines. Lectures described chemical and physical processes taking place in the atmosphere as well as mechanisms of climate impact. Metrics for quantifying the impact of aviation on climate change and monetisation of such impacts were presented. Finally, mitigation options was explained with regards to airframe technology, operational measures and economical measures. The final programme was developed by a Programme Committee: Sigrun Matthes, David Lee, Volker Grewe and Ruben de Leon, Martin HagstrĂ¶m and Ivar Isaksen.
