Abstract:In the last phase, we have focused on analyzing the impact of aircraft flights from Chicago O'Hare and Midway Airports on the regional air quality of the region using the Community Multiscale Air Quality Model (CMAQ) system. Our results suggest that the aircraft traffic at the Chicago O'Hare and Midway Airports do not contribute significantly to ground level ozone pollution in the Chicago area, and are much smaller than the effects due to other emissions such as those from vehicular traffic.
