Research Field: Environment
Airports face significant and evolving environmental issues, and nearly one third of ACRP's research has been related to the topic. To ensure that ACRP's environmental products reflect changes in technology, regulations, and practice, the program undertook a systematic product review to identify those most in need of updating. Among those listed, the following products were identified:
• ACRP Report 11: Guidebook on Preparing Airport Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventories,
• ACRP Report 43: Guidebook of Practices for Improving Environmental Performance at Small Airports,
• ACRP Report 147: Climate Change Adaptation Planning: Risk Assessment for Airports, and
• ACRP Report 160: Addressing Significant Weather Impacts on Airports.
The objective of this research is to update ACRP Reports 11, 43, 147, and 160, including supporting tools and other related material, to reflect the latest developments and practice. The updates may be undertaken under more than one research contract.
