The Federal noise research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) activities during fiscal years 1973 through 1975 are examined to determine the contribution of these efforts to the control of environmental noise and to the understanding of the effects of noise. An analysis is made of the research activities in the areas of noise effects, aircraft noise, surface vehicle noise, and machinery noise. The principal sources of information used are the EPA interagency noise research panels reports on the Federal noise RD&D activities during the FY 73-75 time period and the major noise source candidates which have been identified or are under consideration by the EPA. Federal noise RD&D activities are identified which have supported the development and enforcement of existing or proposed standards and regulations and/or could support future standards and regulations, particularly for the EPA major noise source candidates. Federal research activities which could identify the limits to noise control technology are also identified. Specific and general conclusions are made concerning the adequacy of the current Federal noise RD&D activities to support EPA regulatory activities.
