Critical Issues in Aviation and the Environment 2011

This circular explores the environmental media affected by aviation activities and processes that link aviation and the environment.

It updates and expands upon previous circulars while maintaining their cross-disciplinary approach to reviewing subjects of interest to the civil aviation community in the United States. The circular focus is on the state of science, rather than on policy, and on identifying priority research with the potential to yield benefits during the next several years to several decades. Section titles are as follows: Introduction; Noise; Local Air Quality; Climate Change and Adaptation; Water Quality; Aviation Alternative Fuels Development and Deployment; Sustainability; Environmental Review Process; The Next Generation of Aviation Environmental Modeling Tool Suite; and Technology Deployment.
