C-1 A key component of integrating climate risk into airport management systems is monitoring climate-related metrics over time. You will want to track both the frequency and the severity of climate impacts. Data points for monitoring these changes fall under four primary categories: asset performance, operations, overall expenditures, and weather event frequency and severity. Table 5 provides a list of suggested data points, tracking frequency, and the relevant management systems for each. The personnel needed will vary depending on the type of data and management system.

TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Research Report 188: Using Existing Airport Management Systems to Manage Climate Risk integrates current and projected climate change related risks into airport management systems and planning. The handbook identifies ways to reduce airport vulnerabilities to current and projected impacts of climate change, including extreme weather events. It also explores ways to minimize long-term costs to airport facilities and operations. This handbook provides a detailed guide for integration, as well as a self-assessment tool for determining the applicable systems for climate-related decision-making within the airport.
