It has been demonstrated that large airports have a direct impact on environmental quality as a result of aircraft operation, and an indirect impact by providing a focal point for urban development and industrialization. This report addresses the air pollution impact of an airport and its environs. A methodology is presented for integrating the air pollution impact of an airport and its associated ground-support activities with that of the induced urban development in its vicinity, to provide a quantitative basis for decisions related to airport site selection and for the development of land surrounding the site. Procedures for estimating airport-related air pollutant emissions are defined. The flexible impact methodology is achieved through a general protocol for identifying isolating and quantifying an array of airport related and urban activities which provide environmental insults. The procedures are general and applicable to either existing or proposed airport facilities.
