This report is one of a series describing the research program undertaken by the Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory to develop procedures for predicting the community noise exposure resulting from aircraft operations. It reviews current methods for predicting noise exposure around an airport, the results of various social surveys around airports, and psychoacoustic studies of aircraft noise signals, as well as effects of aircraft performance, flight path dispersion, non-standard weather effects, and other factors affecting the accuracy and variability in predicting aircraft noise exposure on the ground. These reviews and analyses are used to recommend a revised procedure for predicting noise around air bases.
