INCITE Researchers Explore How Aircraft Contrails Can Impact Climate

Researchers at CERFACS and Laboratoire d’Aérologie recently received an INCITE award of 20 million hours at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) to study the contrail-to-cirrus transition. "This project aims at understanding the physics of the formation of contrail cirrus, which occurs when the effects of the atmospheric perturbations become predominant, compared to the dynamics of the aircraft wake where ice particles are initially trapped," notes INCITE PI Roberto Paoli, CERFACS.
