Climate Impacts of Transport
QUANTIFY is an ambitious integrated project funded by the European Commission in the five-year period from March 2005 to February 2010. Its main goal is to quantify the climate impact of global and European transport systems for the present situation and for several scenarios of future development. QUANTIFY uses the collective expertise of 41 participants and 7 member organisations to produce a reliable quantitative assessment of the current climate impacts of various transport modes, as well as of future changes under given transport and climate scenarios. Aside from production of emission inventories, small- and large-scale modelling, analytical studies and remote sensing techniques, QUANTIFY includes a dedicated in-situ aircraft observation campaign and additional shorter aircraft missions. This scope allows for providing policymakers and industry with adequate guidance for decisions, also contributing to European assessments of transport impacts on climate, such as the IPCC reports or within the scope of the EC-funded Specific Support Action ATTICA.
