55 AppEndix B Literature Review Method Use of the TRB’s TRID database facilitated the literature review. TRID is a newly integrated database that combines the records from TRB’s Transportation Research Information Services (TRIS) Database and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD’s) Joint Transport Research Cen- tre’s International Transport Research Documentation (ITRD) Database. TRID provides access to more than 900,000 records of transportation research worldwide. Other databases, particularly those in the environmental and engineering fields were used, as were bibliographies from various sources. Suggestions from the TRB Topic Panel were also reviewed. Recent and ongoing transportation studies that are developing or piloting data collection and analytical methods related to climate change and likely to be applicable to the airport sector were reviewed as well. Other sources and relevant FAA circulars (e.g., regarding master plans, emergency plans) were reviewed, but they are not summarized.
