Aalders, Jaime (author)
Addressing the increasingly urgent need for sustainable aviation solutions, this study explores operational innovations as a quicker and more scalable addition to novel zero-emission propulsion systems. Through the use of regression-based causal inference methods, this study aims to understand the relationship between flight fuelburn...

In recent years, the aviation industry has faced escalating environmental scrutiny, prompted by the global shift towards heightened environmental awareness. This study explores a collaboration framework set up by airlines which envision to partially or totally shoulder the environmental impact costs generated by their airborne emissions. The...

Aircraft emissions can pose a health threat by degrading air quality. The actual pollution footprint of aircraft is however not well understood. This research therefore explores the potential of performing near-runway measurements with low-cost sensor nodes to analyse the plume composition and pollutant contribution of individual aircraft. The...

Ammonia shows great potential for decarbonizing the road transportation sector because it does not produce CO<sub>2</sub> emissions during combustion. On the other hand, ammonia-fueled engines emit gases such as (unburned) ammonia (NH<sub>3</sub>), and nitrogen oxides (NO)<sub>x</sub>, which contribute to air pollution and adversely impact human...

Previous studies have estimated that over 16,000 annual early deaths are induced by global aviation emissions. Combined with a growing industry, this calls for sustainable developments to reduce the negative impact on human health. However, the potential application of more sustainable technologies varies amongst aircraft size and range. Thus,...

In this work the possibility for use of the satellite remote sensing instrument TROPOMI to detect NOx emissions from en-route aviation is assessed. Analysis of aviation intensity, quality of satellite retrievals, and emissions from non-aviation anthropogenic sources showed that the North Atlantic, including the North Atlantic Flight Corridor,...

Since the pre-industrial era, methane has contributed as much as 0.5°C to global warming. With a global warming potential of 28-34 times that of CO2 over 100 years, and with 80 times the warming power of CO2 in the first 20 years, methane has a large impact on climate change. Measurements from the satellite instrument TROPOMI help inform on the...

The approach to sustainable aviation requires effective policy and regulation, informed by accurate environmental research. Aviation emissions inventories form the basis of any environmental assessment, however they are based on simplifications and assumptions that introduce a degree of uncertainty. In terms of robust model development, it is...

Excessive nitrogen deposition from anthropogenic emissions has a global impact on natural biodiversity. While aviation emissions have been studied in the context of climate change and air quality, this is not true for nitrogen deposition. Meanwhile the growth of the aviation industry is likely to increase the relative contribution of aviation...

A lowcost multipollutant sensor box is developed, calibrated and deployed to quantify aviationattributable air quality impacts at Amsterdam Schiphol airport. The sensor box contains four lowcost electrochemical gas sensors that respond to CO, NO, NO2 and O3 concentrations in ambient air. Additional sensors in the sensor box allow the...

As poor air quality poses a risk to human health, this study aims to estimate the impact of Schiphol airport on local concentrations of various air pollutants from January 2014 to August 2020. The pollutants of interest are nitrogen monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone and particulate matter. Three separate methods were applied: a comparison of air...

The aim of this thesis project is to investigate the temporal changes of vegetation in Europe using statistical analysis and machine learning. A methodology is used consisting of five main steps. The first is data pre-processing, which is used to reduce the noise within the data set. This is followed by classification, which divides the data...
