LAX AIRPORT/LAND USE PLANNING STUDY. PHASE 1 REPORT: SHORT TERM NOISE ABATEMENT OPTIONS

Short-term aircraft noise abatement strategies involving minimal capital investment were investigated for application to Los Angeles International Airport. The FAA integrated noise model was used to generate a grid map of noise levels. Noise levels were compared with existing land uses in a city-developed grid mapping program. Of 19 cases investigated, those using 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. over-water approaches and departures showed greatest noise abatement effectiveness, reducing residential area exposed to 65dB Ldn by 30% or more.
