The study was designed to provide estimates of the costs of disruptions delays, diversions, and cancellations of aircraft arrivals landings associated with a number of Category II and III weather situations, with the emphasis on fog situations, at some of the major air carrier airports in the United States. As such they would be measures of the potential economic benefits the airport users would realize if the adverse effects of these weather situations on aircraft landings were completely eliminated by weather modification andor electronic and other approach and landing aids. Specifically, the estimates which were developed and are shown in this part of the report are of the costs of disruptions delays, diversions, and cancellations of scheduled arrivals landings of aircraft of first and second level United States certificated route air carriers in domestic and international passenger service. This part of the report also includes a narrative discussion of the qualifications and limitations of the estimates, conclusions, and a bibliography. Author
