Abstract The major objective of this study was to sample and evaluate noise exposures in a community adjacent to Dallas/Fort Worth Airport where aircraft noise complaints have multiplied. The day-night average sound level at three sites was measured for each of seven days using prototype, automatic computerized sound sampling systems and a special iteractive tape recording system. Results were spot-checked with convential equipment. The noise exposure was within the error tolerances of the NEF-CNR contour map predicted for D/FW airport although it exceeded the EPA guideline of 55 dBA Ldn. Aircraft from D/FW were identified as a major noise source.
