Abstract:

The Navy Conference on Environmental Noise was held at the Naval Academy, Annapolis, in November 1975 under joint sponsorship of NAVMAT, ONR, and BUMED. The purpose was an in-house review of the Navys capabilities, plans, programs, and needs in the area of environmental and occupational noise. This general area deals with airborne noise -- its sources on ships, aircraft, and ashore, its effects on personnel those in the operational and work environment, and those exposed to Navy noise in the off-station or home environment, and methods for noise abatement. This report summarizes the proceedings, conclusions, and recommendations of the conference. The principal outputs are the recommendations of the four workshops in the areas of 1 Medical problems, 2 Aircraft noise, 3 Shore and community noise, and 4 Shipboard noise. The executive summary provides a concise overall review of the conference goals and findings.
