Health Impacts of Aviation-Related Air Pollutants

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recognizes the growing public health concern associated with aviation emissions, either in communities near airports, nationally, or globally. The main science objective of this project is to understand and evaluate how aviation emissions contribute to local and regional air quality, through a combination of measurement and modeling studies, and to evaluate the potential incremental health risks due to air pollutants such as particulate matter, ozone, and hazardous air pollutants.
