Understanding Airport Noise & Air Quality Baselines and Relationship to Operations trending idea

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a drastic reduction (in some cases over 95%) in air traffic operations at airports around the country. The only other time such extreme conditions occurred was after 9/11 (with three days of a total ground stop). The current situation presents an opportunity to collect significantly more data from a longer time period for both noise and air emissions to understand baselines, and the relationship between operations and noise levels and complaints- and between operations and air emissions.
