New runway for Heathrow? Aviation and the environment

by Katharine Thompson

Future expansion of Heathrow is being considered by the UK government.

Useful documents on the consultation process can be found on the Department of Transport website. Also available is a report on UK air passenger demand and carbon dioxide forecasts.

As you might expect there’s a wealth of information and data out there on the subject of air travel and it’s effect on the environment.

Useful databases to search are:

  • Web of Knowledge
  • CSA Illumina
  • Ei Engineering Village
  • EBSCO (contains a number of trade and industry publications)
  • Transport
  • All the above can be accessed via the Digital Library pages.
