DEVELOPMENT OF A UNIFORM APPROACH TO CHARACTERIZE NOISE IMPACT ON PEOPLE

Effective planning requires valid characterization and prediction of the noise environment, an understanding of the origin of the noise and the contribution of various sources, and the legal power to control noise generation and enforce landing-use planning. As a matter of fact, some of the tremendous progress made in producing the new, quieter generation commerical jet aircraft, such as the DC10 or L1011, is almost in vain unless proper land-use planning around airports prevents further encroachment of residential areas on the airport. A noise control program which does not address all phases of the total system-noise sources, transmission path to the receiver, and the receiver of the noise; i.e., the communities and the people in them-must remain effective.
