Environmental Compatible Air Transport System – The European Network of Excellence

Project Objectives

IMK-IFU and IMK-TRO are contributing to the Thematic Area 2 “Local and regional air quality”. The integrating activities will be concentrated on two thematic fields with the following topics:

• Airport Air Quality – Monitoring and instrumentation
• Monitoring activities: gases, VOC, particles, met.; airport and surrounding area
• Case studies
• Experimental design for monitoring and case studies
• Database from monitoring as well as case studies
• Data fusion and data products
• Airport Air Quality – Modelling
• Emission inventories: airport, surrounding area
• Modelling by airport authorities
• Case studies
• Scenario studies
• Model types, mechanisms, modules and coupling
• Data products: synoptic, prognoses, icing conditions, emission reduction measures, experimental design of airport air quality studies, source receptor analyses
