Airport Air Quality Management Guidebook and Resource Library

The objectives of this research were to develop (1) an updatable CD-ROM-based airport air quality management electronic resource library; (2) an airport air quality management 101 guidebook; and (3) problem statements for further related studies needed in the air quality area. The resource library is intended to be used by airport air quality stakeholders to direct them to useful information based on the different topics in air quality management issues. It should be updatable to allow local users to add resources. It should include at a minimum: (a) an indexed list of published documents, resources, and tools; and (b) short videos demonstrating how to use the models and other tools developed by ACRP that have been developed to assist in managing air quality issues. The indexed list of documents and resources should include: (a) a brief summary of the material and (b) hyperlinks to the original material. The airport air quality management 101 guidebook should be written for those airport employees who are not necessarily environmental or air quality specialists or scientists and should include the following discussions at a minimum: The components of air quality management (e.g., planning, permitting, and reporting); Emissions sources and associated airport activities; Air Quality Regulations applicable to airports; Attainment and Non-attainment areas; Decision trees for air quality management processes (i.e., planning, permitting, etc.); Mitigation strategies; Available tools; Emerging issues and topics for further research in airport air quality; Community engagement strategies; FAQs; and Glossary.
