This guidance document contains a general discussion of noise and noise control. Also given are sections on how humans respond to noise, noise control planning, noise descriptors that are used in the FAA's Integrated Noise MOdel, airport noise contours and land use planning, and citizen involvement in noise control planning. This document describes noise control actions and their benefits and costs. This document reflects the Department of Transportation/Federal Aviation Administration Airport Noise Abatement Policy of 1976, a detailed, straighforward statement of the problems of airport noise and the shared responsibilities of those who must work to control it. Also reviewed are the Federal legislature and administrative mandates for noise control. (Author)
