Abstract:

Military jet aircraft flight procedures make it necessary to jettison excess fuel in the event of certain in-flight operational situations. These fuel expulsions can be sizable, and in the presence of sunlight and NOx emissions from engine exhaust there exists the potential for formation of ozone and other manifestations of photochemical smog. Since these fuel dumping procedures are carried out at elevated altitudes the atmospheric properties involved are significantly different from those at ground level. Author
