IMPACT OF SUPERSONIC AIRCRAFT ON UPPER LAYERS OF (ATMOSPHERE) STRATOSPHERE

Recent scientific research has continued to assume that aircraft may contribute to adverse chemical changes in the global atmosphere, especially regarding ozone (O sub 3) depletion as well as in possible changes in climate. However, there is substantial uncertainty regarding the real global impact of aircraft emissions, and governments and other entities worldwide grant funds for such research. This paper deals with the emission of subsonic and supersonic aircraft, with special reference to the impact of SST aircraft on the upper layers of atmosphere that may be harmed by aircraft operation.
