Abstract

In the last decade, air traffic has increased dramatically with a significant increase in emissions. Our goal is to quantify the impact of aircraft emissions on regional air quality, especially in regards to PM2.5 and ozone. Here the focus is on Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport which is the busiest airport in the world based on passenger traffic.
