Paper Abstract

To quantify aircraft engine emissions with respect to their impact on the upper and lower atmosphere, remotely working systems are required. The combination of passive FTIR gas concentration measurements with LDA gas velocity-data from exhaust plumes leads to an absolutely remote determination of emission rates of several molecule species. The combined system was tested at the Munich-North power plant where the obtained fluxes of CO2, CO, NO, and HCl showed good agreement with the in-situ measurements. In case of aircraft emissions of CO2, H2O, CO, and No, data shall be determined. First tests of the system with the DLR-Falcon aircraft in October 1994 will be discussed.
