The flight model calculates the carbon footprint of a passenger's air travel. It's designed to integrate with travel industry and business management systems. With calculations based on extensive airline industry datasets, the model adaptively finds the optimum calculation pathway based on the information provided, and fills any data holes with dynamic averages.
The Careplane technology demo makes extensive use of the flight model.
Impact scope The flight greenhouse gas emission is the anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions attributed to a single passenger on this flight. It includes CO2 emissions from combustion of non-biogenic fuel and extra forcing effects of high-altitude fuel combustion. Narrative methodology statement
