Airports must maintain a safe and efficient facility while considering environmental impacts. Though traditional environmental challenges such as noise and water quality remain, several new themes are emerging, including energy management, sustainability, resiliency, and wildlife management. Airports will need guidelines and practices to help them address these pressing issues, and the first step in the process is to identify knowledge gaps and research needs.
The TRB Airport Cooperative Research Program’s ACRP Web-Only Document 45: Airport Environmental Research Roadmap Narrative Report presents a five-year prioritized listing of research needs in the area of airport environmental management. The description of these needs can be used to develop research problem statements for funding consideration.
