Reducing aviation noise is important to the efficient operation and expansion of the National Airspace System because community opposition to aviation noise is a major obstacle to airport and runway development. The FAA and NASA have the primary fed. responsibility for R&D on aviation noise. FAA focuses on the impacts of aviation noise on communities, while NASA focuses on noise at its source -- aircraft engines and airframes. Both FAA and NASA have set noise reduction goals. This report addresses: (1) FAA¿s and NASA¿s R&D plans for addressing aviation noise and the extent to which they are

Because of concerns about airport-related noise, the Congress asked GAO to determine: (1) the types of projects that are eligible for federally authorized funding to reduce airport-related noise or mitigate its effects; (2) the differences in the major methods for measuring the impact of airport-related noise; (3) FAA's current noise standards for civil subsonic turbojets & the reasons some of those aircraft are not required to comply with these or earlier standards; & (4) the status of FAA's Land Use Planning Initiative & the major issues the initiative has raised about how best to address ai

Noise, or unwanted sound, is one of the most pervasive occupational health problems. Exposure to high levels of noise causes hearing loss and may cause other harmful health effects as well. Prolonged exposure to high noise levels over a period of time gradually causes permanent damage. The OSHA hearing conservation program will protect workers with significant occupational noise exposures from hearing impairment even if they are subject to such noise exposures over their entire working lifetimes. This publication summarizes the required component of OSHAżs hearing conservation program for gen

Environmental noise is a threat to public health, having negative impacts on human health and wellbeing. This book reviews the health effects of night time noise exposure, examines dose-effects relations, and presents interim and ultimate guideline values of night noise exposure. It offers guidance to the policy-makers in reducing the health impacts of night noise, based on expert evaluation of scientific evidence in Europe.The review of scientific evidence and the derivation of guideline values were conducted by outstanding scientists. The contents of the document were peer-reviewed and discu
