Guidebook for Selecting Methods to Monitor Airport and Aircraft Deicing Materials
TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) has released the second edition of Research Report 72: Guidebook for Selecting Methods to Monitor Airport and Aircraft Deicing Materials. The report provides a step-by-step process for identifying, evaluating, and selecting methods to monitor stormwater that is subject to runoff containing deicing materials.
The report addresses identifying the parameters to be monitored and discusses the appropriateness of various monitoring methods and instrument types to meet an airport’s specific needs. The report also provides guidance for setup, operation, and maintenance of each monitoring method.
Technical information on various on-site monitoring methods is provided in a series of fact sheets
. These fact sheets, which are organized by the parameter being monitored, describe key factors such as how the method works, its current level of adoption within the industry, implementation considerations, cost, and advantages/disadvantages.
