The Environmental Data Bank (EDB) represents an effort to compile a comprehensive listing of environmentally-oriented data within one convenient source. The data were collected with the aid of the FAA Regional Offices and include airport-specific information regarding the existence of such things as land acquisition programs or other such noise control actions in effect at each of the U.S. airports listed as of March 1979. The individual airport data themselves are arranged in the alphabetical order of the airport's 'location indicator' (LOCID), by FAA region. These data may not reflect all U.S. airports having significant environmental information, as we have only indicated those data here that have been reported to us. This EDB may be useful by providing a sense of the extent to which environmentally-related activities have affected approximately 475 of our Nation's airports. Briefly, the EDB is organized into four individual volumes: Volume I, User's Manual, gives detailed information about the content and use of the data base.
