Abstract : The study was designed to provide estimates of the costs of disruptions (delays, diversions, and cancellations) of aircraft arrivals (landings) associated with a number of Category II and III weather situations, with the emphasis on fog situations, at some of the major air carrier airports in the United States. As such they would be measures of the potential economic benefits the airport users would realize if the adverse effects of these weather situations on aircraft landings were completely eliminated by weather modification and/or electronic and other approach and landing aids. This part of the report consists of the introduction to the report and a narrative description of the estimating procedure, together with some of supporting statistical material developed in connection with the estimating process.
