This paper presents a brief, relatively nontechnical summary of present understanding of the environmental effects of aircraft emissions during high-altitude-cruise operation. It is shown that the effects of nitric oxide and water on ozone are relatively well established, but that the possible climatic consequences of emissions are, at best, poorly understood.
