TRB will conduct a webinar on Thursday, April 5, 2018, from 2:00PM to 3:30PM ET that features research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP)’s Report 160: Addressing Significant Weather Impacts on Airports: Quick Start Guide and Toolkit.

This research provides a web toolkit that raises airport operator awareness about vulnerabilities caused by significant weather events. The webinar will showcase and demonstrate the Airport Weather Advanced REadiness (AWARE) toolkit, which helps airports identify potential severe weather threats and assess whether they are prepared for them. This toolkit focuses on events that are “rare but plausible”; that is, events that may have happened in the distant past, or in adjacent geographic areas, but are not common event types at the airport itself, and therefore may not be in the forefront of the airport managers’ minds. 

This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, sign into to view registration information.
