E-CONTRAIL Project at Madrid es Ciencia 2024

During Education Week, Universidad Carlos III (UC3M) presented cutting-edge research in an interactive way at the "Madrid es Ciencia" 2024 science fair, which was held at IFEMA. The E-CONTRAIL project, coordinated by UC3M, offered a unique perspective on the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in aeronautics and its implications for climate change.

Scheduled for March 7th from 10:00 to 14:30, this event provided attendees with an immersive experience, delving into the intricate relationship between aviation activities, contrail formation, and their impact on Earth's atmosphere.

Through hands-on experiments, visitors gained insights into the mechanisms driving contrail formation and their influence on climate dynamics. From creating clouds in pressurized bottles to examining thermal behaviors under varying atmospheric conditions, participants had the opportunity to engage directly with the complexities of climate science.

The E-CONTRAIL project team and the UC3M Department of Aerospace Engineering - comprising María Cerezo, Carlos Cobos, Gracia Pérez, Raúl Quibén Figueroa, Bun-Kim San, Manuel Soler Arnedo, Virginia Villaplana and Adrián Zarzoso - aimed to exemplify the role of the E-CONTRAIL project in shedding light on the impact of aviation on global warming.
