Comparative Emissions Database

The Comparative Emissions DataBase (CEDB) web interface was created by Aerodyne Research, Inc. (ARI) under the direction and funding of the US Department of Transportation and Federal Aviation Administration. The objective of this web tool is to facilitate application of the extensive data available in the CEDB, for comparing the potential environmental impact (especially for climate change) of moving passengers and freight via various transportation modes. The CEDB incorporates data from various sources - including measurements by ARI using novel high resolution instruments invented at ARI, as well as other research data available in the scientific literature - and covers air, road, rail and marine transportation modes. Other data sources include certification sources (e.g. EPA certification data).
