The specific objectives were: to select representative airports for which detailed studies would be made of emissions and impact to determine aircraft emission factors and activity levels for the selected airports, to develop future projections of emission rates and their impact at the selected airports, and to determine emission rates and impact of unburned fuel resulting from fuel venting and other practices directly associated with aircraft operating cycles. The survey gives data on hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, particulates, SO2, and lead, all were in significant concentrations. Large reductions in concentrations of carbon monoxide, total hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides, and particulates due to emissions of turbine-engine air-craft may be achieved by various control methods. However if this is not done, predictions presented show major pollution increases. (Author)
