Abstract

The results of a pilot study to assess the feasibility of documenting the occurrence of jet contrails over the US from high-resolution Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) imagery are presented. They are strongly positive, suggesting that 1) contrails can be distinguished from natural cirrus on the imagery; 2) contrails are consistently identifiable; 3) contrails often occur in association with the natural cirrus and frequently spread; and 4) this spreading could extend the accompanying natural cirrus shield.-from Authors
