Life cycle of contrail cirrus clusters. Average life cycle of the short-wave radiative impact (total extinction) of a contrail cirrus cluster originating (left) over the eastern USA (35°N–45°N, 85°W–100°W) and (right) over the central part of Southeast Asia (4°N–14°N und 95°E–110°E) when prescribing present-day (blue) and low (red) initial ice crystal number concentrations associated with the ‘present-day soot number scenario’and ‘low soot number scenario’. Dashed (dotted) lines indicate the 95% (99%) confidence interval calculated using the bootstrapping method35
