Department of Transportation Areas of Global Change Research. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) within the DOT, in conjunction with the Atmospheric Effects of Aviation Project of NASA, conducts research to develop an improved scientific basis for assessment of the environmental impacts of subsonic and supersonic aviation, particularly the atmospheric impacts of commercial aircraft cruise emissions. This information is needed to determine the effects aircraft emissions will have, particularly on stratospheric and tropospheric ozone concentrations and on the global climate. The FAA research is coordinated with efforts of national and international organizations and agencies.
