The intent of this research project was to compare the number of contrails observed by a set of students at Lexington School for the Deaf to the size of the airplane observed producing the contrail. The hypothesis that bigger airplanes will make more contrails compared to smaller airplanes seems to be supported by the data collected and analysis completed.
