Abstract:

This study demonstrates the feasibility of automating a procedure for counting the number of people exposed to various levels of aircraft noise near airbases. The procedure involves developing contours of equal noise exposure about military installations based on aircraft noise and performance data and airport operationalflight track information using the NOISEMAP computer program developing polygon descriptions of the noise contours that are compatible with commercially avilable demographic programs using census tract data and outputing for land use planning purposes, demographic and socio-economic data for present or future years as a function of predicted noise exposure level.
