Development of Aviation Air Quality Assessment Tools

With aviation forecast to grow 5 percent annually over the next 15 years, tools to rapidly estimate the aircraft emissions' air quality and public health impacts will help in assessing the benefits of potential aviation environmental policies, such as use of alternative fuels or NOx stringency measures. This purpose of this study is to develop and implement tools to allow for assessment of year-on-year changes in significant health outcomes, both within the United States (US) and globally. These tools will provide information for decision makers to assess potential aviation policy scenarios.
