Impact of Climate Change on UK Air Transport

PI: Tamara Pejovic
Institution: Imperial College London
This project will identify the possible impacts of climate change for UK aviation and the feedback mechanisms involved. This research is concerned with the possible impacts of climate change on UK aviation and the feedback mechanisms associated with it. Through this new approach, it will identify how changes in the climate will affect UK air transport and how those effects will sequentially influence the ways in which aviation contributes to further climate change. Additionally, it will identify the sensitivities of the mechanisms through which aviation contributes to climate change and identify the most significant ones for the UK region. The research will explore the climate impacts associated with the continuing growth in UK air transport, considering factors such as increased airspace congestion and increased use of regional airports. In addition, the research will analyze and propose policy options to mitigate the impact of air transport on climate change. This work will complement ongoing work by the research team which combines atmospheric data analysis and air traffic simulations to evaluate policies to mitigate the climate impacts of aviation.
