For many airports, a residual population imported by aircraft noise will remain after benefits from all other noise control means have been realized. This report considers residential soundproofing and relocation programs as a means of achieving airport noise/land use compatibility. A detailed discussion of issues involved in such a program is given. To quantify the cost of such a program a methodology is developed and used to integrate parameters affecting noise exposure. A forecast is presented of changes in air carrier airport noise exposure that will occur during the balance of this century. The study also examines the noise exposure benefit of noise abatement flight operations, flight procedure, and restrictions on population encroachment. Soundproofing and relocation costs are developed for four airports.
