Global aircraft emission inventories generally produce three-dimensional (3D) gridded data and they necessarily use various simplifying assumptions. They contain several essential elements: (a) a database of aircraft movements; (b) a representation of the aircraft and engine types that constitute the global aircraft fleet; (c) a fuel-flow model; (d) a method for calculating emissions at typical cruising levels from fuel flow values; and (e) emission data for the aircraft landing and take-off (LTO) cycle (Lee and Raper 2003).

Although early legislation focused on localised aviation environmental impacts (localised air pollution and noise), the effects of aircraft on the global atmosphere were also considered during the 1970s (RCEP 1971; 2002). Initially, those effects were mainly hypothetical: they related to a proposed fleet of supersonic aircraft cruising in the stratosphere. Studies by Crutzen (1971) and Johnston (1971) indicated that the NOx emissions from such a fleet could significantly deplete stratospheric O3; however, only a limited supersonic fleet of supersonic civil aircraft was eventually developed (comprising Concorde and the Tupolev Tu-144) and the expected large supersonic fleet was never built (Lee and Raper 2003; Rogers et al.

2009; Njegovan 2006). Nevertheless, some authors have drawn attention to the apparently irreconcilable tensions resulting from simultaneous attempts to service the growing demand for air transport and to promote environmental 38 Air Transport and the Environment sustainability (Bows et al. 2006, 2009; Cairns and Newson 2006; Graham and Guyer 1999). Therefore, concerns about the environmental impacts of air transport now represent an additional constraint of the growth of the industry – a concept that is referred to as limited environmental capacity (Graham 2001; Upham 2001; Upham et al.
