This report provides information obtained during an environmental noise assessment of the residential areas adjacent to Hartsfield International Airport in Atlanta, Georgia. Noise contours based on average day night sound level (Ldn) were developed for 1977 level of operations and this analytical prediction was compared with continuous twenty-four hour monitoring at forty-two ground stations. Durations from predicted sound levels, vis-a-vis, measured sound levels were assessed in terms of the number of monitoring days at each site, and the total land area in acres (inside of and exterior to the airport boundary), within each Ldn contour was estimated in 5dB increments from 65dBA to 85dBA. A summary of the monitoring results is provided as is a set of conclusions regarding the possible effects of the noise exposures on activity interference, annoyance, and health and welfare in general.
