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.
