 IngentaConnect Aviation radiative forcing in 2000: An update on IPCC (1999)
New estimates of the various contributions to the radiative forcing (RF) from aviation are presented, mainly based on results from the TRADEOFF project that update those of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 1999).
The new estimate of the total RF from aviation for 2000 is approximately the same as that of the IPCC's estimate for 1992.
This is mainly a consequence of the strongly reduced RF from contrails, which compensates the increase due to increased traffic from 1992 to 2000.
