AIRPORT NOISE--A MONITORING PROGRAM AND THE FIRST STEPS TOWARD ITS SOLUTION

Difficulties in defining subjectively tolerable noise level criteria relevant to airport noise and community noise are discussed, and the applicability of such criteria to noise in general is considered. A noise monitoring program involving the distribution of ruggedized low-cost environmental noise monitors to some 350 families in the airport vicinity enlisted in the program is described. Lower noise levels from one airline were found to reflect consistent and rigorous adherence to recommended procedures, with further benefits in safety and lower fuel costs.
