Sample text

Several studies of the impacts and management of aircraft noise were published in a 1967 edition of the Journal of Sound and Vibration (Hubbard et al. 1967; Kryter 1967; Lauber 1967; Pattarini 1967; Sawyer 1967). In 1969, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) established its Committee on Aircraft Noise (CAN), which developed international standards for aircraft noise performance and which focused on encouraging technological developments leading to the manufacture of quieter engines, such as the use of acoustic linings (Mangiarotty 1971).

In that book, a framework was presented for considering the economic and social benefits of air transport alongside its environmental and social costs. Those notable overviews have been supplemented with a large number of scientific, economic and policy-focused studies of specific aspects of aviation environmental issues, many of which inform the subsequent chapters of this book. Knowledge of aviation environmental issues continues to evolve rapidly, particularly in relation to climate change, as researchers and other commentators explore the various options for mitigating the effects of aviation emissions on climate.

Given the historical evolution of air transport in the Northern Hemisphere, centred on the air transport markets of North America and Europe, those regions receive most attention in this book; other regions – such as South America and Africa – receive scant attention in comparison. However, the current and projected growth of air transport in other parts of the world – especially in China, Southeast Asia and parts of the Middle East – is one of the most significant trends in the contemporary geography of air transport.
