Emissions from aircraft have adverse effects on the air quality in and around airports, contributing to public health concerns within neighbouring communities. AVIATOR will adopt a multi-level measurement, modelling and assessment approach to develop an improved description and quantification of the relevant aircraft engine emissions, and their impact on air quality under different climatic conditions. Particulate and gaseous emissions in a test cell and on-wing from an in-service aircraft will be measured to determine pollutant plume evolution from the engine and APU exhaust. This will provide an enhanced understanding of primary emitted pollutants, specifically the nvPM and vPM (down to 10nm), and the scalability between the regulatory test cell and real environments. AVIATOR will develop and deploy a proof-of-concept low cost sensor network for monitoring UFP, PM and gaseous species across multiple airports and surrounding communities. Campaigns will be complemented by high-fidelity modelling of aircraft exhaust dynamics, microphysical and chemical processes within the plume. CFD, box, and airport air quality models will be applied, providing validated parameterisations of the relevant processes, applicable to standard dispersion modelling on the local scale. Working with the regulatory community, AVIATOR will develop improved guidance on measuring and modelling the impact of aircraft emissions, and will provide airports and regulators with tools and guidance to improve the assessment of air quality in and around airports.
