Proceedings of the Transportation Land Use, Planning, and Air Quality Conference, held in Denver, Colorado, July 28-29, 2009. Sponsored by the Transportation & Development Institute of ASCE; Federal Highway Administration; Transportation Air Quality Committee of Transportation Research Board; Center for Transportation Research and Education at Iowa State University; Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
This collection contains 14 selected, peer-reviewed papers that examine the challenges of balancing increases in travel demand with growing air-quality concerns by emphasizing the latest research coordinating the advancements and environmental impacts of transportation. The main focus of the conference was the "moving cooler" study, implemented by various federal agencies, state and local governments, and interest groups with the goal of evaluating a broad range of climate change strategies.
- environmental impacts of freight;
- effect of fuel prices;
- integrating land use into transit systems planning;
- climate change, emissions, and air-quality models;
- land-use models; and
- advancements in computing technology and modeling.
This collection will be of great value to engineers working in the fields of climate change, transportation, and land use.
