Executive Summary This report describes an improved technique for estimating emissions and fuel use for civil aircraft in the UK and presents estimates of emissions (1990 to 2002 inclusive) from this technique. The work has been completed to improve the quality of the estimates of emissions from aviation for the UK greenhouse gas inventory. The method estimates emissions from the number of aircraft movements of broken down by at aircraft type at each UK airport and so complies with the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) Tier 3 specification. The emissions will be included in both the UK National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory and the UK Greenhouse Gas Inventory. Therefore, emissions of a range of pollutants have been estimated in addition to greenhouse gases. In comparison with earlier methods used to estimate emissions from aviation for the greenhouse gas inventory, the approach described here is much more detailed and reflects differences between airports and the aircraft that use them. Additional emission sources (such as aircraft auxiliary power units) are also now included. This study has utilised data from a range of airport emission inventories compiled in the last few years by Netcen. This work includes the RASCO study (23 regional airports, with a 1999 case calculated from CAA movement data) carried out for the Department for Transport (DfT), and the published inventories for Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports, commissioned by BAA and representative of the fleets at those airports in a fairly recent year. Emissions of NO x and fuel use from the Heathrow inventory have been used to verify the results of this study.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
