Improving Aviation Climate Policy Analysis Tools using ACCRI Results

This study will advance how aviation climate impacts tools inform the decision making process in aviation environmental policy. The main thrust of this study is to develop a framework for analyzing the societal costs and benefits of aviation environmental policy using an extended modeling capability. However, with this additional capability comes the difficulty of communicating large amounts of highly technical data with significant variability and uncertainty. Thus, this project looks to develop relevant, useful and understandable metrics to communicate societal impacts of potential aviation policy scenarios to all relevant stakeholders.
