Abstract : A survey of atmospheric pollution by aircraft engines and fuels and related research work was conducted. Approximately 45 organizations in the United States, United Kingdom, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, and Italy were contacted and over 100 relevant programs identified. A list of the organizations is given. Aircraft produce a small but significant and increasing contribution to air pollution. Twenty-seven current or potential problem areas for investigation are described and related work outlined. Of these areas, the five most pressing are: Engine emission characteristics; Test procedures; Nitric oxide formation; Carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons at low power; Effect of high altitude emissions. Recommendations are presented. (Author)
