Abstract

Common motor oil is injected into the exhaust manifold of an aircraft where it is vaporized, and then mixes into the cold outside air to condense into a dense oil fog. This air marking technique has been used in atmospheric research activities to visually track or maintain contact between research aircraft in flight, and to track seeded plumes and air parcels.
