ANALYSIS OF THE PUBLIC HEALTH AND WELFARE EFFECTS OF EPA PROPOSED AIRCRAFT NOISE REGULATIONS

A series of aircraft noise regulations has been proposed by EPA to FAA for consideration under the procedures of the Noise Control Act. One of the components involved in these regulations is an assessment of their effect on reducing noise impact, i.e., the effect on public health and welfare if the regulations are implemented. This report utilizes the concept of fractional impact analysis to assess several of the proposed regulations. In this concept the number of decibels that a noise exposure exceeds the identified levels specified in the EPA Levels report determines a fractional impact index.
