Paper Abstract

Airport air quality is influenced by traffic mainly. Near runway the aircrafts are the main source. The quantification of these emission sources requires remote sensing methods because the airport operations should not be disturbed. DOAS is used in open-path mode to detect continuously NO2 cross the runway during nearly one year. Those runway emission studies were performed for the first time. During the measurement campaign these findings were compared with corresponding aircraft taxiway emission measurements. The concentration measurements of CO2 which are necessary to calculate emission indices are provided by open-path FTIR spectrometry. Aircraft emission indices of CO, NO and NO2 could be determined at taxiway only. Open questions and required further developments will be discussed.
