What influence do contrails and volcanic emissions have on the climate? Scientists from the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) tackled this question by conducting 12 research flights with the Falcon research aircraft as part of the Concert (Contrail and Cirrus Experiment) project. These extensive measurements will allow the verification of existing simulations and calculations.
