ASSESSMENT OF NOISE EXPOSURE PRODUCED BY VARIATIONS IN LANDING APPROACH PROCEDURES AT SAN JOSE MUNICIPAL AIRPORT

A series of noise measurements were performed at San Jose Municipal Airport in support of the EPA investigation of the use of aircraft operational procedures as means for noise control. These measurements were made to evaluate the effectiveness of different aircraft approach procedures, as used in normal practice by several different airlines, in reducing noise received on the ground in the vicinity of the airport.
