Ascent Topics


The aviation industry also faces the challenge of reducing airplane emissions. Emissions from the aviation industry impact human health and contribute to global climate change. To address these concerns we must first understand exactly how aviation emissions affect our world.

To help the industry understand and change emissions levels, ASCENT researchers are working to analyze data and improve models to better understand the effect of airplane emissions, create and refine analysis techniques on airport –specific and global scales, and understand how policy changes could affect emissions.
