Abstract
It is believed that the analysis of air traffic impacts on air quality will benefit from attention to the three-dimensional nature of the air traffic network as well as the actions of individual aircraft during the study period. With the existence of air traffic simulation models, the actions of individual aircraft may already be defined in a simulated environment. SIMMOD, the Federal Aviation Administration's airport and airspace modeling software, performs such models of scheduled air traffic. The results of such models may be used to determine the impacts of scheduled air traffic on air quality as well as other parameters. This report addresses the interpretation of output from SIMMOD models for use in air quality analysis and visualization of the air traffic network, and the application of these techniques in a stand-alone computer program. This program, named AQM for its purpose in assisting development of Air Quality Models, provides a working framework for future development of software for detailed air quality analysis and visualization.
