Abstract : The report describes the development of a computer model that can be used to determine the impact of an existing or planned airport on the air quality in its vicinity. The model development was supported by an air quality monitoring and emission activity data acquisition program. O'Hare International Airport, Chicago, Illinois, and Orange County Airport, Los Angeles, California was selected as test sites, each being representative of a predominantly commercial airport and a predominantly general aviation report, respectively. The activity simulation and air quality model are discussed. Results of the computations of air quality concentrations and comparisons with observations are presented. (Author)
