Guidebook for Best Practices in Utilizing FAA's AEDT for Modeling and Reporting Noise and Air Quality Emissions from Aircraft Operations
expressed the need for better guidance to understand how the FAA's Aviation
Environmental Design Tool (AEDT) works in modeling noise and air quality
emissions, as well as how to best utilize it for modeling and reporting.
Further, the transition from separate models for noise and air quality, the
Integrated Noise Model (INM) and Emissions and Dispersion Modeling System
(EDMS), respectively, presents a challenge for airports to explain
differences in emissions or noise effects modeled year over year to the
public. Guidance materials on FAA's AEDT, with an emphasis in how to explain
the results and model differences to stakeholders is needed.
The objective is
develop a guidebook and accompanying training tools for airports to
effectively utilize FAA's AEDT model for noise and air quality modeling,
reporting, documentation and communicating the results to the public.
