Diffusion and Fallout of Pollutants Emitted by Aircraft Engines

  • S. L. Soo


Emission of pollutants by aircraft engines has become an important topic because of:
  1. 1.

    Complaints of smoke, odor, and soiling caused by jet emissions near an airport.

  2. 2.

    Reduced visibility caused by the aircraft that depends on good terminal visibility at the airport.

  3. 3.

    Unsettled argument as to the effect of high-altitude emission on the earth’s environment.
