TRB’s Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board, No. 2058 includes 21 papers that explore the planning and environment linkages umbrella to streamline transportation decision making, the "Tennessee Environmental Procedures Manual", infrastructure strategies to reduce emissions from intermodal freight movement in southern California, link-based emission factors for heavy-duty diesel trucks, B20 biodiesel emissions compared to petroleum diesel emissions, and biodiesel impact on hot stabilized emissions from school buses. This issue of the TRR also examines MOBILE6.2 and Emfac2007 emission factors, driving cycles for classified roads based on vehicle emissions, emission behavior of public transport buses with alternative diesel fuels, environmental impacts of catalytic converter malfunctions, strategies to reduce trucking emissions in southern California, predicting on-road particle number concentrations of light-duty gasoline vehicles, and emission analysis at toll station area in Beijing. In addition, this report addresses a consistent wildlife habitat classification to improve transportation and conservation planning, acoustical absorption of porous pavement, wireless sensor networks for assessing the environmental impact of transport noise, environmental assessment of tire-pavement noise, linking the National Environmental Policy Act and planning, behavioral response to fuel-cell vehicle fleet and hydrogen fueling infrastructure, carbon dioxide impacts of traffic congestion, and vehicle and E85 stations needed to achieve ethanol goals.
Individual TRRs, which are published on an irregular basis throughout the year, consist of collections of peer-reviewed papers on specific transportation subject areas and modes. TRB's TRR Online service allows all visitors to identify papers of interest and review abstracts of those papers. Access to the full papers is available to service subscribers and employees of TRB sponsors. Papers may also be purchased on an individual basis.
Printed copies of TRR Journals may also be purchased on an annual subscription basis. Each year, TRB publishes approximately 45 volumes of the TRR Journal, containing more than 800 papers grouped by subject.
