Airport Climate Adaptation and Resilience - A Synthesis of Airport Practice (2013)

Description

Airports are vital national resources. They serve a key role in transportation of people and goods and in regional, national, and international commerce. They are where the nation’s aviation system connects with other modes of transportation and where national responsibility for managing and regulating air traffic operations intersects with the role of lower level governments that own and operate most airports. Research is necessary to solve common operating problems, to adapt appropriate new technologies from other industries, and to introduce innovations into the airport industry. The US Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) serves as one of the principal means by which the airport industry can develop innovative near-term solutions to meet demands placed on it. This US report is also relevant for European airports.
